For all you Drum Corps and Marching Band fans, the Ohio University’s Marching band performed LMFAO’s ”Party Rock Anthem,” during their half-time show last Saturday in Athens, Ohio.
I absolutely loved it! For all you folks that don't know, I dated a girl who played an instrument in High School, so marching bands hold a special place in my heart. My high school marching band was very competitive when I was growing up. Our band always got a 1 in district competitions, and when I was there, it was like 30 or so years the band had earned them in a row. They were so close to winning several state competitions when I was in school.
Added to my fascination with marching bands, my current partner, Ryan was in a high school marching band, and one of our best friends, Michaelis a Colorguard Director for a school near Houston, TX.
Talk about having a bridge party. Why don't we all risk our lives like this? Geez. Are people really this stupid? Using a few cables, a wooden platform, a homemade hot tub, and a few friends, a group of “extreme jacuzzi” fanatics dangled 128 feet off the side of the 620 foot Gueuroz Bridge in Switzerland.
It took six hours to assemble the makeshift hot-tub and about 2500 hours to plan to mission. Water was heated in a second jacuzzi on the bridge and lowered onto the platform where a gas-powered system kept it warm.
I don't know about you, but if it's 38 degrees outside, I'd be at home cuddling with my partner eating popcorn and watching a show. Not dangling off the side of a bridge like an idiot. Am I being too harsh?
And yes, if you're interested you can see more pics and how it was assembled here.
