It's a good time to be a geek. For the longest time, we had to suffer through the worst quality TV shows and movies to celebrate our geekiness. Geeks certainly weren't mainstream and there was NO WAY you'd associate geeks with football.
Times have certainly changed. Recently, the Ohio State University Marching Band performed a “Superheroes” show during halftime of the Nebraska game. The show is a tribute to many of our favorite Marvel and DC characters, all under the guise of teaming up to defeat villains like the Joker and (since it's OSU) the Michigan Wolverines.
The video below shows the OSU marching band morphing into eight different superhero-inspired logos and characters, including:
- The Avengers
- Thor (who brings down the hammer on the Michigan Wolverines),
- Captain America
- Iron Man
- Batman (plus the Joker!)
- The Hulk
- And The Spectacular Spider-Man (Seriously, he was spectacular)
Check out the video below (and wait for that Spider-Man formation at 5:25 with the webs and the swinging!)
