Any good videos/pics from that awesome halftime show?

I wanted to show people how awesome the halftime show was yesterday. Between the jet pack and the helicopter, hockey players checking Brutus and Mary Sue playing M I was throroughly entertained. Bravo to whoever coordinated that show.


This is all I have found so far:

jetpack was loud.  I was in section 43 about 20 rows from the field and had to cover my ears when he went by.  Anyone else find it odd that he got really really close to the North scoreboard/montior?  Looked like he only had about 5-6 feed of clearance there - was worried he was going to run right into it there for a minute.

When he went over the stadium on his jet pack his trajectory dropped very quickly after clearing the top of the stadium. Did anyone see him land? I did not  hear any sirens so I suppose he made it down safe.

I wish I had my phone with me to video it. He literally flew right over us on his way out and I'm way up in the 94th row so that thing was loud as it passed by

That show was such a pleasant surprise. I was in it, and I'm in that video somewhere. That week of rehearsal was brutal. The music memorization wasn't going well, we couldn't get things set right, and most of us thought no one would get the jokes. Disaster seemed imminent.

Then a funny thing happened: It worked. Really, really well. The fact people are still talking about it now is pretty awesome.

I know that for a lot people in the stadium, halftime is about running to the bathroom, rehydrating or fueling up, but consistently the band has done a great job in providing a nice diversion especially to kick off the season.

Working in the whole James Bond theme, getting the jet pack guy and filming the cut scenes all took time and money. Playing more popular and recognizable tunes (not all public domain) is also a charge which is often overlooked.

Great job!
