Marching Band's Tribute To Video Games Half-Time Show

October 8, 2012


Note: It's Columbo Day and I'm using it to take care of some real-life stuff. If I disappear all of a sudden in a cloud of smoke just know that I'm a powerful magician and will reappear tomorrow, possibly out of a top-hat.

This is The Ohio State University's marching band performing a 9-minute tribute to video games as part of their half-time show. It's got everything: Pokemon, Pac-Man, Tetris, Halo, Zelda, Super Mario Bros -- you name it. "Borderlands?" No Borderlands. "Assassin's Creed?" No Assassin's Creed. "So not really everything." I'm so glad I don't have to know you in real life.

Hit the jump for the video. Really worthwhile running Epona after the 6:00 mark.

Thanks to Lord Alfred von Sugarbangs, Jiggita, Outspire, Ptentacle, Jerica, Argh and Brandy, who agree a quality half-time show can make or break the football game experience. Also, Virginia Tech is such a disappointment I don't even think I can bring myself to watch the rest of the season.

    All I can say is what an amazing example of teamwork and co-operation.

    I saw another video from the same game earlier this morning, I think ThinkGeek posted it up somewhere. But yeah... that was an epic halftime show. I really wish they would start spending the time showing these rather than listening to the commentators talk that entire time.
