People Confused The Korean Flag For The Pepsi Logo At The Olympics

In case you’ve been taking a nap for the past week, you should know that the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics started in South Korea this past Friday.


As always, the games began with an elaborate Opening Ceremony.


For the most part, reactions were positive.


There was one moment, however, during the opening ceremony that appears to have confused some people:


Dancers assembled in the form of the red and blue Taeguk, which is the central element of the South Korean flag.


Many seemed to believe this was a reference to the old logo of soft drink giant Pepsi.


In fairness, there is a strong resemblance between the two symbols. But shouldn’t the fact that this year’s Winter Olympics are in South Korea make it obvious what was actually being depicted?
Either way, here are some of the funniest tweets about the similarities.
