Sochi, Russia – It was meant to be truly spectacular – snow flakes exploding to form the five rings of the Olympic logo. Except that one snow flake, well, flaked and didn’t turn into the fifth Olympic ring.
It was one of the embarrassing moments of the Sochi Olympics opening ceremony.
But no worries, the technical glitch has resulted in a multi-million t-shirt business. Just minutes after the glitch unfolded on worldwide television, an enterprising Filipino produced and marketed a t-shirt bearing the botched Olympic rings image.
Internet orders of the t-shirt immediately came pouring in, resulting in a 30-day back order status, and assuring the entrepreneur earnings that would take him past his retirement age.
