The Ohio State University marching band is always amazing but this is the best one I've seen yet. If you are short on time at least watch 1:25 to 1:45 (TETRIS) and then the best part (I think) is from around 5:45 to 6:45 (THE HORSE) and it's super awesome again at 7:15 to the end. No, just watch the whole video, they are mindblowing. The amount of work that goes into this choreography is insane. I'd pay just to see them, who cares about the football game?


Thank you to...
