Airbands: More Entertaining Than a Broken Leg

airbandsAfter 2.5 hours of Airbands, I craved a quick and painless death. But I conquered my hasty reactions and blogged about it instead.

The show began at 7:00 last night and entertained me for a brief spell. But it refused to end. Who the hell willingly spends three hours of their nights to experience the bastard child of a threesome between PSU homecoming gusto, cheap rap beats, and Disney Channel original movies?

Hundreds and hundreds of students did attend… so I guess a lot of folks get their kicks out of such pornographic fantasies. See the Facebook album for additional photos.

I must confess, many groups expressed success and possessed finesse. But I digress. Here are some acts that impressed:

Best History Lesson:  The “Wild Wild West” dance crew. Didn’t know cowboys wore Uggs.

Most Sculpted Physiques:  The Male Gymnastics Team. Dayum!

Best MCBronne Bruzgo. He appeared on the Real World, so he’s cool, right?

Best Holiday Mashup:  Epic dance/battle scene between Santa Claus and a legion of costumed Halloweeners.

Personal Favorite:  Sigma Zeta Gamma Alpha, or was it Beta Kappa Psi Omega… Delta Nu Tau Iota? It’s all Greek to me.

Best Crowd Response:  Atlas THON. The music machine choked and silence ensued during their rendition of “I Want It That Way.” But the hyped-up crowd belted out the end of the song for them!

Best Attempt:  When the music died, someone attempted to start the “We Want the Lion” chant. Turns out we didn’t want the lion.

Worst Costumes:  The guys wearing the PSU whiteout shirts. Football and Jesus references? No thank you.

Best Movie Spinoff:  Toy Story. Buzz, Woody, Bo Peep, and the rest of the crew performed “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” and “Barbie Girl,” among others.

Best Michael Jackson Cover:  There were about 50, so I forget.

Official Winner:  Lion Ambassadors. Those overachievers have their paws in everything.
