The 2008 USC-Notre Dame football game at the LA Coliseum was not a great one for the Fighting Irish. They lost to USC 38-3
, en route to a disappointing 6-6 record for the season. Notre Dame had only 4 first downs and 91 total yards on offense (!!!).
But the game turned out to be a fateful one for the Band of the Fighting Irish
, Notre Dame's 167 year-old marching band. Playing a triumphant show at USC for the first time ever
, the band did a medley that included the OK Go song "Here it Goes Again," which became famous when the very fun low-budget video
of the rock band's members performing on treadmills went viral. The Notre Dame band's performance that day
included the marching band making two gigantic treadmills on the field, and band members reenacting some of the video's moves. Little did they know that this would lead to their star turn in a music video. [more inside]
