There's already a T-shirt of the Olympic ring fail at the Sochi Opening Ceremony

There have been no shortage of problems in Sochi, but the biggest malfunction came during the Olympics Opening Ceremony Friday and it was broadcast for the world to see. One of the Olympic rings didn't open. Instead of five rings, we saw four rings and a snowflake-looking thing.

This being 2014, such a public gaffe means a couple things will probably follow: a parody twitter and/or a commemorative T-shirt. Here's your Olympic ring fail T-shirt.


It was created by Michael Miller, a designer at a New York advertising agency and it's already for sale. It'll cost you $22.95. Even as more Americans were watching the ring gaffe during the NBC primtime broadcast, Miller said on Twitter that he hadn't sold too many T-shirts yet. But he had some plans for whatever money he does make.

Somebody buy one and send it to Russian president Vladimir Putin. Just in case he still hasn't seen the ring glitch yet.
