As everyone knows, NBC has a vice grip on Olympic copyright. So, in order to show highlights from the games without fear of legal take-down, the Wall Street Journal got crafty as hell and made their OWN highlight real.

That pretzel stick. That World Record line. This is the stuff of legend, folks.

NBC, I'm not sure how you do it, but you've managed to one-up yourselves. In the MOMENTS after Gabby Douglas became the first African-American to win All-Around Gold in Gymnastics, NBC aired a commercial about a monkey doing gymnastics. REALLY?

Behold: The Korbut Flip.

Named after Soviet gymnast Olga Korbut, the Korbut Flip involves standing on the high bar and performing a backflip, then regrasping the bar on the descent. The move was banned because it interrupts the rhythm created by swinging, but also because it's CRAZY DANGEROUS.

Warning: This video contains awesome, dangerous, and insanely badass gymnastics moves.

Gabby Douglas just won the Women's Gymnastics Individual All-Around GOLD!

She edged out a heartbroken Victoria Komova by just .259 points for the win. Fellow Russian Aliya Mustafina came in third, with American Aly Raisman coming in fourth.

GETTIT, GIRLS

The smart money here is clearly on the gymnast. Sorry Bane, but can you execute a flawless floor routine? I THINK NOT.
