OK Go Irish
Okay, everybody in the world has linked to the “Rube Goldberg Machine” version of OK Go’s new video “This Too Shall Pass.” And you should watch it, because it’s awesome. But what I didn’t realise is that there’s also a marching band version featuring the Notre Dame Marching Band! The band play along with them in a field with camouflaged musicians popping up and kids running around with ribbons. It’s very cool. (I wonder what the ND association is. The ND band famously played “Here It Goes Again” at a halftime show a couple years ago. Maybe that was the genesis?)
Edited to add: Okay, I just found another version of Notre Dame’s “Here It Goes Again” routine and the YouTube description clearly states that this led to the collaboration on “This Too Shall Pass.” Man, could I love the ND Band more? I could not.
