Sochi kicked off the 2014 Winter Olympics today with an opening ceremony featuring a little girl and her kite, a volcano, floating villages, four snowflakes that opened into Olympic rings (and one that didn't), a bunch of Russians and the games' official mascots: A polar bear, a leopard and a hare.

Though it was the polar bear (which looked browner than any polar bear we've ever seen, so from here on out we will just refer to it as a brown bear, because that's what it was) that left a lasting memory.

Oh and by the way, it moves.
