Can you imagine being a football player out on the field during a big college game? It’s a frightening thought, being out there with 11 players built for bringing the pain, all ready to pulverize you. That is unless… your team was made up of superheroes! Or even better: If you didn’t have to go out on the field at all, and could just watch a marching band form a bunch of cool superheroes from via the safety of not being a football player.
If that second option sounds pretty sweet, then you’re in luck! During a recent game between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the Ohio State Marching Band put on a dazzling halftime show that celebrated a bunch of the Avengers, as well as the dynamic DC duo (why not call them that?), Batman and Superman.
The video above, which comes via Laughing Squid, shows the OSU marching band form into eight different superhero-inspired logos and characters, including: the Avengers logo, Thor (who brings down the hammer on the Michigan Wolverines), Captain America’s’ shield, Iron Man, the Batman logo (plus the Joker!), Superman, the Hulk, and, marching band drum roll please… Spider-Man. Seriously, the Spider-Man formation (at 5:25) is so cool. He shoots a web and everything:
Even though the marching band members may not be the people you’d want on your side in a football game or in a Captain America: Civil War airport-type fight, they do appear to have super coordination powers, which would make them ideal for battling… the villains of good rhythm!
What do you think about this OSUMB halftime show? Is this the craziest marching band display you’ve ever seen? Let us know in the comments below!
