This past weekend, the University of Clemson Marching Band conducted a Nintendo-themed performance during halftime of the Clemson-Georgia Tech game, and boy was it impressive. The band starts off with select works from Koji Kondo’s Mario themes and then smoothly transitions into the Legend of Zelda. Aside from the rousing renditions of some classic NES themes, the Clemson Marching bad moved in unison to form into the shape of Mario’s face, a 1-Up Mushroom, and a Power Star. The kicker in this performance though was their clever, albeit crude, shape-shifting into Link, complete with forward-slashing motion of the Master Sword.
Enjoy the video of the performance above.
