Friday Night Videos on Friday: Marching Band

This one’s for Jeff McClure, and anyone else who’s ever willingly watched a DCI show.

I’m enough of a marching band nerd that my first thought was, “Why aren’t they marching on a football field?” There is an answer, one which will become immediately obvious upon watching the video.

For those of you who prefer words to images, here’s OK Go explaining why you can’t embed their videos on your blog via YouTube.

    That’s cool! I wonder which band they got to help them out with it. 🙂

    That video is amazing. And I hadn’t seen the NPR story on their battles with EMI. Man, record companies.
