(FOX19) -

The Ohio State University Marching Band, often called The Best Damn Band in the Land, has been known for their elaborate field performances.

As the band took the field on Saturday during the Iowa Hawkeyes game, the band succeeded in bringing one of pop music's most iconic performers to life. A halftime show featuring songs from the King of Pop has gone viral.

The band created a giant formation depicting Michael Jackson equipped with a giant white glove. The band then proceeded to move the formation to make Michael Jackson moonwalk across the football field.

Michael then decided to do the splits, with his leg span extending nearly 45 yards.

While the whole performance (a bit over 11 minutes) merits watching, the action really picks up around 4:15.
