OSU marching band boldly goes

A little while ago, the interwebz went all twitterpated over the Ohio State University marching band doing a halftime show tribute to gaming. Don't get me wrong: it was really cool, especially the part starting at 6 minutes in. I was in a marching band for many years (shocker) and I'm amazed at what OSU did.

But somehow that particular show overshadowed the one OSU did on September 15 that was way cooler. And by cooler, I mean geekier.

Behold:


I don't want to spoil it, but if you want a cheat sheet, the You Tube page for the video has a list of the highlights and their times in the video.

My favorite part - duh - starts at 4:50. Make sure you keep watching for a minute. Make it so.

Tip o the shako to Heather Curtis.
