It's a bird, it's a plane, it's … the Ohio State Marching Band!
Just a week after moonwalking into everyone's hearts – and social media – with its celebration of the 25th anniversary release of Michael Jackson's album Bad, the Ohio State Marching Band has done it again, this time during Saturday's halftime show of the Ohio State-Penn State football game.
The new theme was Hollywood Blockbusters, and, in the midst of the main title to this year's Man of Steel, band members split into two groups, one of which formed a leaning building while the other created the figure of Superman, complete with cape, flying across the field to right the falling structure.

Can't get Johnny Depp to answer the invitation to come to your house? Do the next best thing – build him.
That's what LEGO master model builder Erik Varszegi did for Tuesday's preview event leading up to the American International Toy Fair in Manhattan. And it only took some 200 hours and more than 150,000 LEGO bricks.
But look what he got for it: a 6-ft.-tall version of PEOPLE's twice-named Sexiest Man Alive as Captain Jack Sparrow. In the flesh next to LEGO Depp is costar Ian McShane, who plays Blackbeard in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, due in theaters this May.

It's not a pirate's life for Zac Efron – at least not yet.
Despite reports to the contrary, the High School Musical 3: Senior Year star says he has no confirmed plans to follow Orlando Bloom as the young knave in Johnny Depp's shadow in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
"Honestly, at this time it's just a rumor," Efron told Ryan Seacrest on the American Idol host's radio show on Wednesday. "I wish I was going to be in Pirates of the Caribbean 4, so hopefully that will happen for me."
