Ohio State University’s marching band did the coolest thing I’ve ever seen a marching band do during the halftime of Saturday’s game. In the midst of a musical tribute to Michael Jackson, they actually formed into a figure of Michael Jackson which moonwalked across the field. This is not to be missed. You can watch the highlights above. There’s a fast-motion version below. And at the bottom, you can watch the entire halftime show.
Brilliant! There’s a reason they’re called the “The Best D*** Band in the Land!”
I live in Columbus and can tell you that it is a gem of a city whether you’re a sports fan or an arts aficionado. I’ve lived in Los Angeles and New York, but Columbus is home. People are by-and-large genuine and kind, the cost of living is reasonable and there are a million places to shop and eat great food. There’s a strong spirit of community and service here as well. Every place I’ve worked strongly encourages donating one’s time to various causes and will facilitate your doing so.
True … the weather is unpleasant for perhaps a third of the year and the scenery is lacking … but one can’t have everything, I suppose.
“People are by-and-large genuine and kind”
That’s why the one time I attended a game there wearing UofM clothing I was cursed at, spit on and one very “kind” gentleman made many references to my mother and sister….
But as a former WMU BMB member, their field show was pretty dope.
That is very cool. Thanks for posting it, Denny.
That was good, but the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band is still better 🙂
Michael Jackson was a sad character in life who likely greatly harmed children and now he is lost for eternity; I cannot be excited about a tribute to him.
Calling it right now. They needs a Darth Vader/Luke Skywalker fight and have the band members swing at each other as lightsabers during a night game and kill half the lights to see it. That would be epic.
