Every marching band not from Ohio University—you have just been served. Ohio University just took it up a notch.
Marching bands have done fun songs. Marching bands have had fun choreography. But I have never seen another marching band do both with such wild success like the Bobcat Crew's Party Rock Anthem.
You know a marching band is doing something right when a video of their performance goes viral and it doesn't involve people crashing into each other or some other laugh worthy accident.
This is the first video I have ever watched that made me say, "Wow, marching band looks like fun."
And that is something I never thought I'd say. I have nothing against marching bands. I just typically don't watch them. The routines are typically dull, tired and repetitive.
A little creativity goes a long way. Ohio University proves that a lot of creativity goes even further.
Those are some dance moves when you consider the bulk of the instruments they are carrying. This is the one marching band routine where I think I would be more likely to get hurt playing in the band than playing in the game.
If I was at a game and I knew the marching band was about to play this at halftime, I think I would go to the bathroom and concession stands during the last couple of minutes of the game just so I would be sure not to miss any of the band's routine.
And compliments don't get much higher than that.
