The Second Best Damn Half Time Entertainment You'll Ever See

More Nintendo marching band madness
College Football and marching bands go together like Apple Pie and a cup of Joe in North America, and we hope you forgive our lazy cultural reference. But still, they do, and occasionally these groups put together ridiculously complicated routines with choreography to delight those in the cheap seats. Naturally they get filmed doing it, and last year we shared an outstanding effort from the Ohio State University Marching Band; now Clemson University (South Carolina) has got in on the act.
Its routine is all about Nintendo, focusing on the Mario and The Legend of Zelda franchises. It's fun and impressive, and better than our unrecorded effort with four staffers and kazoos, admittedly. We see various Mario shapes and a clever recreation of the end of level flagpole, while Link makes an appearance with the Master Sword, too. It's an impressive effort, though Ohio State's performance arguably has the edge courtesy of its galloping Epona, which is still mind-blowing.
