OSU marching band performs a Michael Jackson tribute complete with moonwalk (VIDEO)

In case you didn't know the Ohio State University Marching Band puts on a half-time show that shouldn't be missed— here's proof.

During their latest performance — a tribute to Michael Jackson’s Bad album, released 25 years ago – the band entirely justified their claim to be The Best Damn Band in the Land.

In a routine during Saturday’s game against the University of Iowa, the band’s 225 musicians played a medley of hits, including the title track, Billie Jean, The Way You Make Me Feel and Man in the Mirror – but it was the formations that make your jaw drop.

They seamlessly moved from one to the other — at one point forming the word "Bad" and the crown that adorns the album cover.

The most impressive moment, though, arrived during Billie Jean, when the band formed an image of Michael Jackson himself (04:15), complete with a white glove —  and then moonwalked. All that was missing was Bubbles the Chimp.

Footage of the clip, posted to YouTube, has gone viral, with over two million views to date.
