    The Ohio State Marching Band has shown why it lives up to its nickname and that it has its collective finger on the pulse of what’s trending. 

    This week’s halftime show had musicians doing the Floss, the viral dance that many kids are doing when they’re just standing around. 

    But it wasn’t the individual musicians swinging their arms back and forth, but rather, large formations that looked like people who stretched nearly sideline to sideline.

    And while it was a little slow, one Twitter user sped up the video and came up with this: 


    TRENDING NOW:


    The entire 10-minute show was called “Dance, Dance, Dance” and featured songs like “Uptown Funk,” “Don’t Stop Until You Get Enough,” “Footloose” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling” but started with “Shut Up and Dance.”

    But Ohio State wasn’t the only band that brought its “A” game for halftime creativity. 

    Iowa State’s band resurrected dinosaurs: Dancing T. Rexes took the field in the form of blow-up costumes to perform a routine to John Williams’ “Jurassic Park” theme.

    But it wasn’t just a tribute to “Jurassic Park,” the band also performed songs from “Star Wars,” “Jaws” and “E.T.,” USA Today reported.
