Twitter Reacts To Neil Diamond Impersonator In Beaver Stadium

The Nittany Lions’ 45-14 win over Indiana marked Penn State’s first-ever throwback game, dubbed “Generations of Greatness.” From throwback uniforms with white cleats to a Blue Band performance with hits from Star Wars, Dirty Dancing, and Titanic, this game had it all. Including a Neil Diamond impersonator to lead “Sweet Caroline.”

Penn State Twitter had a field day with this one.

I’m concerned for this man, but I can’t say I’m all that surprised.

It’s times like these that unite this great nation.

If I had to guess, you can thank Penn State Athletics Strategic Communications. However weird it may be, I can only wish I thought of this idea. You’ve gotta pull the game theme together somehow.

Every student section thinks it’s the most extra student section in the country, but Penn State’s is the only one that actually is. Also, most people thought he was actually Neil Diamond, so that didn’t hurt, either.

You’re certainly not wrong.

What can he say? He’s a Neil of all trades.

You and the entire student section, Donnie.

This experience was priceless. But I get it.

The guy who booked this gig definitely deserves a raise.

You don’t know what you’re missing, Emma.

“Penn State’s an incredible school with great academics AND they have great taste in Neil Diamond tributes? No matter! Their football program should’ve gotten the death penalty.”

Life comes at you fast.

I just feel bad this kid missed out on Saquon Barkley throwing a touchdown pass.
