A box appeared in downtown Cleveland and out came the Marching 110 dressed in colorful wigs. Ohio University’s Marching 110 got down to Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” the theme song for the new Dreamworks Animation “Trolls.”

According to the Athens Messenger, “The Most Exciting Band in the Land” was joined by professional dancers and chosen because of the type of energy they bring to performances.

According to a press release, “Trolls is a film about finding your happy place, no matter who you are or how old you are.” said DreamWorks Animation’s Head of Digital Marketing Justin Pertschuk. “We felt that if we could combine the infectious anthem of ’Can’t Stop the Feeling!’ with a world-class college marching band, and set it loose in a place like downtown Cleveland in front of an unsuspecting crowd, we’d be able to captured in real life the joy and the fun that’s at the core of our movie.

Featuring original music from Justin Timberlake, the film stars the voice talent of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Russell Brand, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Quvenzhané Wallis, with John Cleese and Gwen Stefani.
