During the halftime of the university’s football game versus Iowa, the marching band fanned out and launched into a Jackson tribute, playing parts of songs like “Thriller” and “Bad.” But that was just a warm-up: Next, they created a field-wide outline of Jackson’s profile, complete with over-sized white glove.
And as they blasted through Jackson’s hit “The Way You Make Me Feel,” the marchers made Jackson dance in a way no one had ever seen before, including taking him through his classic moonwalk dance, and even making him do a split. The video has so far racked up over 80,000 views.
OSU’s marching band has been making lots of noise lately with its inventive routines; in Oct. 2012 they did a video game tribute whose video has racked up over 15 million views. But for sheer visual originality, it’s hard to beat their latest triumph. Be sure to check it out; the whole video is worth watching, but things really get interesting around the 4:15 mark.
And for the record? OSU won the game later on. Check Out How Creative This Video is!!!!
