Every four years, athletes from all corners of the earth gather to play the most popular sport in the world - soccer, er, football, er, kick rock in net game.
But before the players can take the field, we all must sit through a totally head-scratching ceremony to open the World Cup!
Well, Brazil did not disappoint in the WTF department. The show they put on in Sao Paulo today!
Here are the most bizarre moments that we spotted during the 2014 World Cup opening ceremonies!
It all started with a blossoming flower…that turned into the stage! Woah!
And look who emerged from the inside! It’s Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull!
Umm…but then the platform started going down. J. Lo was confused.
So Pitbull decided they’d just jump out of the hole. What a gentleman!
There was tons of arm waving…
And whatever these people are dressed as…
Then Cláudia Leitte started air-grinding in front of Jennifer!
But even after all this weirdness, the guy dressed as a tree loved every second of the Wold Cup opening ceremonies!
Let the games begin!
