An orchestral Super Bowl

Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony sounds like you’ve never heard it before in the video, topped off by some humorous commentary to help you along the way. The first big incident sees one of the horn players called for a “fumble” after a dreadful note that stands out like a sore thumb. This leads to some speculation as to whether he might be traded to another orchestra, but the commentators conclude they may give him another chance.

Other highlights include a clash between the oboist and conductor, resulting in a “delay of game” and an injury to one of the players with rather amusing and unexpected consequences.

Whether you don’t have the staying power to keep focused throughout the game, or you just want an alternative to the halftime show, you’re sure to be entertained.
