With Halloween upon us, the Florida State University marching band decided to celebrate the holiday during halftime of the Seminoles game against Syracuse on Saturday.
The band came dressed up as zombies and then took to the field at halftime like a horde of walkers on The Walking Dead. From there, they performed a pretty great version of the “Thriller” dance for the fans at Doak Campbell Stadium.
They also spelled out “Thriller” in their formation, and spelling things out in human form is still an underratedly difficult thing to accomplish.
We’ve seen some pretty great marching band performances in college football this year, whether it was the UCLA and Cal bands teaming up to troll USC with a trojan horse, Michigan State’s band honoring Marvel with their performance, Southern’s human jukebox playing some of today’s hits, or of course Kansas State sending a certain message to Kansas about their beloved Jayhawk, but dressing as zombies and perfectly dancing to “Thriller” on the eve of Halloween is pretty tough to top.
To make it even better for the band, FSU avenged their heartbreaking loss to Georgia Tech last week by pummeling Syracuse 45-21, even without Dalvin Cook or Everett Golson.
