Halloween seems like it was celebrated by everyone in the sporting world on Thursday. While some athletes dressed up off the field at their respective Halloween parties or events, others were on the field, working hard on the holiday. The Indiana Hoosiers football team was on the field on Thursday while all of their friends were surely out partying. However, they had a little fun of their own reenacting Michael Jackson‘s Thriller dance.

We always see people reenact this dance and act like they know how it’s done. It’s Indiana’s turn to try and show us what the famous Thriller dance is all about.

Okay, so it looks like they were half-heartedly into it. Some players were mulling around while others were really into the dance and executed the moves to perfection. It would have been way more awesome if the players actually knew all the steps and if this video was longer than a minute.

It’s cool to see programs taking time out of their busy practice schedule to have a little fun with some of the players. I’m sure these guys have been working hard all season to have an explosive offense and to try and make their first bowl game since 2007, their third since 1992 and their first bowl win since 1991.

That will take a lot of work as this team is 3-4 with three winnable games left on the schedule. Maybe this little act of fun will give them a bit of mojo for the rest of the season.
