Russia turned a major fail into a hilarious win at the Sochi Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony on Sunday.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, the country’s opening ceremony featured an embarrassing moment when a snowflake failed to open into an Olympic ring during a lights display.

Rather than make up for the mistake during the closing presentation, the Russian Olympics committee instead poked fun at the gaffe.

When dancers formed a recreation of the Olympics rings, one group initially stayed tiny, to mimic the mishap.

Who knew Russia could be self-deprecating?
