A group of Marines who are about to graduate decided to do a trick drill very different from the things that people are used to. The video went viral in no time.

Knowing that they would leave the Parris Island soon, the Drill Instructor of these Marines decided to teach them something different: "The Money Drill." Everything began as a common trick as they were walking as synchronized as it could be from side to side.

Later, when they were in the middle of the field, the group divided into four smaller packs and started walking in four directions. On the instructor’s command, they walked back to the center.

However, they turned around again and started walking in different directions once again before finally getting into the large group.

EDI Sgt. Justin Wagner, the instructor and the person who posted that video, set clear that those Marines were on what they call “Marine Week,” the week of graduation right after the Crucible that makes them Marines.

“We had a few extra minutes, so I taught them that on the fly. The 5060 (Drill & Ceremonies Manual) specifically says that Trick Drill may be taught once they master all standard drill movements,” pointed out Wagner.

Due to how good that drill was, several people commented on it saying that they were very impressed. Others pointed out that they would have like to see it in person.

A couple of seconds later, one marine at the DJ booth put black sunglasses on, and things went wild. The marching band stopped performing, and Macklemore’s Thrift Shop began playing.

From one side of the huge hall, another marine walked to the middle singing and, later, another one got in riding a scooter. Things kept improving when a larger group joined them. The video has almost 2 million views on YouTube.
