The 'Are You Watching the Olympics' Chart is Hilarious

The 'Are You Watching The Olympics?' chart is a funny walk-through of the history of the games, and what defines the viewership of the sporting event.

Created by Good, the guide explores the original motives of the games and the way in which nationalism plays into the event. Colored in purple and white, and featuring very little Olympic spirit, the guide is neutral in a likable kind of way, and the contrast of the piece makes it stand out.

Mentioning how old the Olympics are and who established them, the resulting answer for most people will be that "petty nationalism" is their motive for tuning in. Whether this be the case or not, the hilarious satire used throughout the piece make this an offbeat piece of Olympic content that's sure to spread like wildfire.
