As the ceremony got under way with a dramatic, drummed countdown, viewers watching at home and on giant screens inside the Bird's Nest National Stadium watched as a series of giant footprints outlined in fireworks processed gloriously above the city from Tiananmen Square.

My understanding is that the footprints actually went off, but due to concerns that any one helicopter position would be unable to show them all, they simply edited in footage (hurr durr) of the ones that couldn't be seen/most of them.

The fireworks were there for real, outside the stadium. But those responsible for filming the extravaganza decided in advance it would be impossible to capture all 29 footprints from the air.

Nuff said?

Hey, notice that the photo is 09.08.2008, shouldn't it be 08.08.2008 instead since the OP took place on 8th of August 2008? Photo possibly an edit(A Fake)?
