Ladies and Gentlemen, scattered over the four corners of the earth: the MOB – the 1971 Marching Owl Band.
band runs out, forms TV
The MOB has formed a television set, for tonight's show is a sampling of the boob tube's greatest nemesis – the commercial.
band forms head of hair while loudspeaker plays "The Real Thing"
16.57% of all TV commercials are about hair and how to take care of it. Foremost among these is the one in which a young long-hair is sitting in the barber's chair, when his girlfriend enters and says: "You cut one lock of his hair and I'll melt your scissors!" The MOB has appropriately formed a head of long hair and will play the title song from – what else? – the musical HAIR.
Band forms pimple while loudspeaker plays "NBC."
Clean hair, of course, deserves a clean face. Rid your face of unsightly blemishes with OJ's, Clearasil, or the product of your choice. The MOB has formed an acne pimple to play "Put on a Happy Face."
Put on a Happy Face
With "Happy Face" finished, band forms toilet while speaker plays "NBC."
A spotless bathroom bowl is a must in any house. Leaving yours dirty could lead to many complications. The MOB plays "Goin' Outa My Head" while in toilet bowl formation.
Goin' Outa My Head
Music finished. Band forms beer can while speaker plays "NBC."
A beer in the hand is worth two in the bush. Or, no football game is really complete without spirit. To commemorate beer commercials, the MOB has formed the world's largest beer can and will play "You've Said It All."
You've Said It All
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have said it all – and maybe too much. Thank you and good night!
[Ed. note: A local group performed following the MOB's show.]
Thursday's Children moves out onto field.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Marching Owl Band takes pleasure in presenting the popular Houston recording group: Thursday's Children

In honor of our visitors tonight from California, the earthquake state, Thursday's Children will now play the popular Carole King song, "I Feel the Earth Move."
