The Olympics Closing Ceremony has a bit of a clown element to it. The strange look on Sunday morning might have had fans scratching their heads, but there was a reason for the clown approach. Once again the viewers around the world met Luba (the girl who was seen in the Opening Ceremony) and she guided by two more children Yuri and Valentina. According to the New York Times on Sunday, those clowns will be hanging around the entire Closing Ceremony.

The clowns showed up piloting the boat that was with the three children in the opening moments. With a segment called The Sky and The Sea. From above the fans could see the small boat way above the water. Technically, the water was a light show, but none the less it looked quite real.

While the beginning of the Closing Ceremony had quite an impact, those folks who are afraid of clowns really should turn away. It was a strange idea to see a clown as a captain of a ship. Even if the ship was in midair.

Take a look at the photo slideshow of the opening sequence of the Closing Ceremony. While the moment definitely is unique, it isn't quite what many fans had in mind when they considered the ending to an Olympics. Then again, this opening definitely was interesting!
