Now that people can barely even remember anything that happened during the London Olympics, the world is ready to start getting excited about spending 2016 in Rio de Janeiro. Accordingly, the Brazilian Olympic Committee has just released the theme song for the Rio Games.

The Hollywood Reporter describes the song as "a samba-funk anthem." It's titled "The Gods of Olympus Visit Rio de Janeiro" (Os Deuses do Olimpo Visitam o Rio de Janeiro in the language of supermodels).

The music video apparently depicts Apollo, Poseidon, Hercules, and Aphrodite just hanging around Rio because they love it, though the actors portraying them only resemble gods in as much as normal Brazilians resemble gods. No one is wearing gladiator sandals.


All in all, the tune is way more chill and fun than Muse's terrifying "Survival" anthem for London, just like how everything that happens in Rio de Janeiro is way more chill and fun than anything that happens in London. (Except for favela violence.)
