After a long, long wait for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, we should've known that we'd be in for a hell of a ride when the first meme-y story was whether or not the beds in the Olympic Village were sex-proof.

Now, we're not even a week into the Summer Games, and we've already seen enough chaos to make up for all of the lost time. The Opening Ceremony saw the emergence of an oiled-up, shirtless hero, set to the backdrop of the best video game music from this century. Once the events finally kicked off, we were introduced to a Terminator-looking, basketball-playing robot that served as the halftime entertainment for an early hoops game. (And proceeded to stick around in our nightmares!) Later in the weekend, Australian Ariarne Titmus upset Katie Ledecky in the 400m freestyle. But if you looked up in the stands, you could see Titmus's coach, Dean Boxall, absolutely losing his shit, which prompted the Twitter masses to lose their shit. And the athletes tried to break those supposedly flimsy beds. Again, we're only a few days into the action. Here are the best social media reactions to the Olympic Games so far.
