The Tokyo 2020 opening ceremony on Friday (July 23)  was one surreal and solemn affair. Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, the ceremony unfolded in a largely empty rebuilt National Stadium (less than 1,000 spectators in the 68,000-seat venue). But that didn’t stop the host country — which last held the Games in 1964 — from putting on one spectacular show. Highlights include a jaw-dropping light show using 1,800 drones, and a quirky human pictogram performance.

Here are the other moments which had viewers talking about via memes.  You can catch the Opening Ceremony and the rest of the action from the Tokyo Olympics on meWATCH and Mediacorp Entertainment YouTube channel.
