The Golden Band from Tiger Land was showered with retweets from cast members of The Office after rocking the hit show’s theme song during last month’s win over La Tech.
Drum major Beau Bujol says to return the favor the band has invited the show’s cast down to Baton Rouge to see it live.
“We believe in southern hospitality here at LSU, and we wanted to extend an invitation to them and have them come down and see the show live, because the reaction that they’ve given and the reaction all over the internet is crazy.”
John Krasinski who played Jim, Steve Carrell who played Michael, and Angela Kinsey, who was born in Lafayette and played Angela, among other cast members commented on the halftime show. Bujol says it’s been one of the highlights of the season for the band.
“It’s gone viral with actors form the show commenting on it and saying how much they liked it. For the band it’s been such a pleasure seeing all of these comments and seeing these reactions.”
The halftime entertainment was labeled the “Bingewatch Show” and it wasn’t just aimed at fans of the Office. Bujol says five other iconic series got some love from the LSU Band.
“Clips from fresh prince of Bel Air, Game of Thrones, The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation, I Dream of Jeanie, and The Office.”
Clips from the halftime performance are available on YouTube and Twitter.
