Pure, unadulterated awesomeness.

I just looked on YouTube and this performance is listed under "Popular videos from U.S. Hompage"
And it has over 2.3 million views.... 2.3 MILLION!!! 
It was just posted yesterday.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

Dude, it made People Magazine's website
The closest that site gets to sports coverage is when it declares Tom Brady the "sexiest athlete alive."
TBDBITL has arrived.

I had no idea People Magazine was still around.

Norah O'Donnel mentioned the half-time show on CBS This Morning FWIW.

It was on the Today Show this morning too.  TBDBITL is utterly ridiculous.

what are the movie references for the "double-circle" and the next formation which looks like a basket?

Lord of the Rings (it was the PRECIOOOOUS)
And I think the other one is Star Wars....the Jedi-Alliance symbol?  Not sure since I was geeking out so hard sending pictures of the LOTR reference to my other dork friends.

It was the Eye of Sauron.

ok, yeah I remember guessing LOTR while watching with my wife.  Couldn't make out the announcers call.

I actually think the GIF image makes it look better! Particularly the Jurassic Park one. Just awesomeness all around...
And it's roughly 16 seconds, but who's counting?

You are right Unky.  t the fast pace it actually looks like flying and walking.  I would like to see the MJ moonwalk from Iowa speeded up as well.

TBDBITL does not get snubbed by the voters, for they are awash in style points.

Had friends in from Florida just to go to the PSU game.  First time at the 'Shoe and first Buckeye game for a Georgia dawg and a WVU Mountaineer.  They said as they were going through airport security in Tampa, the worker asked where they were going in Ohio.  They responded they were visiting friends and going to the OSU game.  The TSA officer then preceeded to talk about TBDBITL and raving about the half-time show from the Wisconsin game.  He told them they would have the time of their life and "Go Bucks!".
We even managed to get them on the field before the game standing in front of the team for quick cals.  They sat in the seats through the entire half time and watched the show then stayed 'til the bitter end for Carmen Ohio. 
Needless to say, they returned to Florida fully in awe of our traditions and consider themselves Buckeye fans.

Edit: couldn't get the source GIF to embed properly.
Scarlet Images Photography also created a GIF of the entire halftime that includes PSU's show. It's a striking contrast. Clearly, PSU is still working on mastering basic geometric shapes.

Last weeks half time show got featured on iFunny.

My 86 year old grandmother sent me a very excited email this morning after she saw the clip on the Today Show. Of course I immediately sent her the full video back so it is now making its rounds of the northern michigan retirement community as well...

TBDBITL has been killing it all season long.  PSU band was turrble in comparison, much like their foosball team.

Glad someone posted this. It's a great look at all the big animated feats TBDBITL's had over the past two years!

This is the strongest season TBDBITL has put together. Just flexing their dominance all over the rest of the college landscape. All other bands should bow when in their presence they're that much better than anyone else out there.

The TBDBITL band director is earning every cent, and then some, of his paycheck.

I get just as emotional watching TBDBITL as I do watching out team on the field.

This has been a GREAT season for the band, wow.
