During the Ravens vs. Bills NFL game this past Sunday, a gentleman in the audience was filmed as he delivered a masterful air-drum rendition of classic Rush track “Tom Sawyer,” which was being played through the PA system at the given moment.
The video was quick to go viral. 8.5 million views later, the gentleman was identified as Peter Zirpolo of the Baltimore Ravens Marching Band.
The clip even reached Rush themselves, who wrote on Twitter:
“The professor would approve!”
