Video: Marching band celebrates all things SpongeBob at halftime

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? For the halftime show during the football game against Wisconsin, it was The Ohio State University Marching Band.

“SpongeBob: The Great Buckeye Chase” pulled music and moments from the long-running Nickelodeon series. If nautical nonsense be something you wish, this performance delivered.

The marching band took a deep dive into the hits from the series, including the “SpongeBob SquarePants Theme,” “Campfire Song Song” and “Bikini Bottom Boogie.”

Marching band director Christopher Hoch designed the drill that included a pirate ship sailing across the field, Evil Plankton stealing a buckeye and appearances from SpongeBob and his friend Patrick Star. The show closed out with a formation of SpongeBob, absorbent and yellow and porous is he, returning home to his pineapple under the sea.

Brett Weimken, a city and regional planning major from Napoleon, was the i-dotter this week.
