This is absolutely glorious, people. Behold the Penn State Blue Band during the Eastern Illinois Game halftime show last month(?*), playing the themes of geek favorite movies Batman (starting at 0:14), Rocky (1:48), Back to the Future (3:10), Star Wars (6:24), and Superman (8:40).
The familiar, beloved, marching-bandified tunes provide half the joy, but just wait ’til you see the choreographed visuals. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but let’s just say there was–momentarily ago–an excess of gleeful giggling and clapping in my home.

Credit for the find goes to Chris, who thinks cheerleaders are people, too, darn it.
* There’s very little chance of my having any reliable information whatsoever about college football.
** That’s me singing the Batman movie theme.
