Memories of Olympics Past: I Guess Barbecuing Doves Was a Thing in 1988

The Opening Ceremonies in Seoul back in 1988 were pretty normal by Opening Ceremonies standards. And if by "normal" you mean "immolated a score of doves with the Olympic Cauldron" you'd be totally right.


The fun begins around 4:47, right around the time you see the birds flying perilously close to an open flame.

(Warning: While it's not all that graphic, if you're sensitive to barbecued white pigeons I advise caution in your viewing)
