Ohio State University's Marching Band Pays Homage To Hollywood Blockbusters (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Michael Jackson's moonwalk re-enacted by a marching band? That's so last week.

This week, The Ohio State University marching band set its sights on Hollywood, converting blockbuster movies from the silver screen to the playing green. "Superman" gets a nod at 1:20, "The Lord of the Rings" makes an appearance about a minute later, and "Harry Potter" drops in, then hops on his broomstick at 4:59.

At the video's 6 minute mark, the marching band's "Jurassic Park" tribute portrays a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex that walks downfield and eats someone.

But the real special effects don't kick in until 7:27, where the band uses fireworks to recreate a battle between two ships for "Pirates of the Caribbean."

As you'd expect, their accompanying theme music for each movie isn't too shabby, either -- certainly enough to make John Williams proud.
