Closing Ceremonies 2010 Olympics

20:07 @r2dent Looks like someone switched the list of top 10 canadian artist with top 10 worst canadian artist and VANOC didn’t catch on…

20:05 @McEwen13 Everything was amazing before and including Neil Young in the Closing Ceremonies. The rest was a disgrace to Canada.

20:05 @JayzieTo With the Vancouver Olympics over, the producers of the closing ceremonies can’t be fired, altho they deserve to be #van2010

20:04 @stephcloutier The performances at the closing ceremonies kind put a damper on winning #gold at the #olympics, don’t u think?

20:04 @RickyTicky Well, that was pretty good. Much better than the opening. Shame Nickelback RUINED THE WHOLE THING

20:03 @KalaineD The best part of closing ceremonies was twittering how bad it was with friends. Glad I wasn’t alone for the horror.

20:03 @annechantal Hey VANOC, can we get our money back for this BS? Worst closing ceremonies EVER. #van2010 #bringonsochi

20:02 @causticchick Talk about a letdown of Olympic proportions. RT @dandoan: What? That’s it?

20:01 @LeikaLaRae So glad Justin Bieber didn’t sing tonight. Phew.

19:58 @beballchick End of Ceremony is really bad. Sorry world, all canadian apologize for this. #notsarcastictweet

19:53 @IveeGee: This closing ceremony has it all. Creepy Russian stuff. Captain Kirk. Flying inflatable beavers. And now a lot of really bad music.

19:53 @KatyAnderson is the Closing Ceremony musical lineup a parody too?

19:53 @TimTripp Uh, sorry. #ClosingCeremony #Olympics #Vancouver2010 #van2010 #sorry

19:52 @pipey21 dear world. we have better music than this. really. love, all canadians.

19:52 @TurnipCannon It’s almost as if the Canadian iPod is on shuffle, and it’s coming across songs we’ve been meaning to delete.

19:49 @EtotheZ: Apparently the polite way to get people to leave your country is to play increasingly bad music until the place clears out

19:39 @todmaffin: The music clearly picked by a cmte of white guys in their late 50s who think they’re “with it” with what the kids listen to. #FAIL #van2010

19:38 @soleus17 Okay I can’t take this anymore… #olympicclosingceremonies i’m turning it. On to Pimsleur Farsi Lesson 3.

19:36 @ScottWinterr: Nickelback & Avril? I thought this was #Van2010 not #Van2002

19:32 @soundgurl Why Nickelback? Why? Why? I’m changing my citizenship. And even though I’m not a fan, they have better songs

19:29 @doggietweets things missing: inflatable Wayne Gretzky, inflatable cast of Ice Road Truckers.

19:28 @tedleo So, crack finally made its way up north, huh?

19:26 @luclatulippe I think this is the end of the world.

19:25 @hardkori in my mind, this couldn’t have been better!

19:24 @thedouggordon This is like if Springfield held the Olympics on “The Simpsons.”

19:23 @BeckySchuurman “No you’re not hallucinating. Those are giant beavers and flying moose”

19:23 @indii3 Giant beaver and flying moose … omg … roflmfao … what the world will think of us now … LMAO …

19:21 @BeckySchuurman “My father was mountie… He didn’t dance like that” I love this spectacle

19:16 @marcelgonsalves Does Michael Buble always have leggy Mounties in his show? When’s he coming back through town?

19:14 @ amyangeli They should just end it already. Its getting lamer by the minute

19:07 @abatheguy William Shatner??? Isn’t he suposed to be back on the Starship Enterprise?

18:58 @marcelgonsalves Neil Young!!! Making up for Canada’s embarassments since 1967.

18:50 @TedLeo This may be the craziest barrage of white & black magic psychotic fever dream insanity I have ever sat through.

18:31 @marcelgonsalves “This presentation is something like Russia meets Avatar.” I’m not making this shit up. #olympicclosingceremonies

18:30 @marcelgonsalves OMG! RU ROOTING FOR SPACEMAN OR CHARIOT OF ICE HORSES?!? #olympicclosingceremonies

18:21 @Judd_Rules The #OlympicClosingCeremonies: “Like a halftime show except there’s nothing to look forward too.”

17:48 @HamataroGirl Hey Mr. Harper, are you talking during the national anthem or do you not know the words? #Olympicclosingceremonies

17:38 @LetyRoxtar A bunch of kids all dressed alike with fake snowboards all jumping up and down = weird… #canadians #wtf #olympicclosingceremonies

15:58 @RobB0T: I guess using Nickelback would be a great way to get people to leave the country.

    I started out thinking ‘Oh this will be good, Neil to open… But then it just kept getting worse! I would think oh Thank Gawd that is over now they will bring out the good stuff… I was wrong. I made a joke around the Mounties and at this rate they will have them doing the Can-Can and THEY DID! I am sooooo embarrassed; we have such great talent in this country, why would they think this represents us as a country. CBC should be grateful they were not associated with that mess! For those who want a good representation of Canada Tune into CBC Radio or TV to hear the best of Canadian music and comedy!

    What was up with the blacking out of the Marshall Logos on Avril’s band amplifiers?
