College Bands and Video Game Music

In the past few years I have noticed that a lot of college bands have taken up video game music during half time and time outs and other breaks in the action. I had to do a double take the first time I heard The Legend of Zelda's Overworld Theme being playing by the University of Maryland band during a Terps Basketball game. It seems that the generation of kids who are now in college all grew up with video games in their lives. And now they are nostalgically celebrating those wonderful tunes.

Here's a must see video of the University of California Golden Bears band not only playing a medley of video game songs, but acting them out in formation. Thanks to Heromaster118 for posting it in the forum.

Do you have any examples of college bands playing video game music?
