Watch it below. Frontman Max Kerman said in a statement, "It's such a joy to take on an artistic event like the Grey Cup halftime show. We depend on so many talented friends to pull off a show like this. From the Lumineers and K.Flay to the Northern Soul Horns, the Arkettes and our crew, it was a true team effort. The best part of being in a band is finding projects we love that will consume us, and that's what this experience has been. Hundreds of hours of work goes into pulling off 15 minutes of chaos on live television!"
