Video: The Ohio State Marching Band's Tribute to Michael Jackson

By Jason Priestas on October 21, 2013 at 7:28a

We showed you footage of TBDBITL's Michael Jackson moonwalk over the weekend, but here's glorious, 1080p video of the entire halftime performance.

Highlights include the band spelling out "BAD" in the style of Jackson's 1987 album, a dancing King of Pop and more. But, if you're here just to see the moonwalk again, hit the 4:30 mark.

Oh, and here's a GIF for you.

Second most important person at OSU.....the director of TBDBITL.  
Unbelievable as always.

What luck we fans who attend games have! No matter the result of the game, TBDBITL is always fabulous entertainment.

I absolutely love our band. I have never seen better. 

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

am i the only one that finds it unnerving to honor a guy who was an accused child molester ?

Being accused doesn't entail being guilty. Yes, you can make your own assumptions, but nevertheless he was never found guilty of those accusations. Regardless, he was a music genius and I see nothing wrong with honoring his music.

Those settlements he paid out to the alleged victims doesn't mean anything right?

funny that every kid he was ever accused of was privately paid to keep quiet and now several of them are coming forward.... love our band, but this disappointed me!!!!

Already at 33000 some views...I wonder how many this will get (last years got over a million I believe).

So good.
Unfortunately, I was waiting 20 freaking minutes to pee while this was going on. I heard the crowd though and they seemed to like it.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

The nation is becoming more aware of our band, and the YouTube videos help broadcast their greatness.

Come on eSECpn, you know you want to show TBDBITL at halftime of the last BCS MNC game, so start lobbying for Ohio State to pick up spots in the rankings!

Simply put, they are The Best Damn Band In The Land.

Two of my friends who are Penn State alum posted this video on fb earlier this week with commentary admitting grudging respect.
As always, so proud of our band
