Petition For Weird Al To Perform The Super Bowl Halftime Show
The Super Bowl halftime show has been a bit on the bland side since that whole Justin Timberlake-Janet Jackson booby slip ten years ago.
The halftime show didn't start making improvements until this past Super Bowl when the NFL called upon Beyonce to perform. Now there's a petition on change.org to keep the momentum going.
That performer is none other than Weird Al Yankovic. The petition was started only a few days ago by a man named Ed Ball and already the petition has garnered over 6,000 signatures.
Ball had this to say when he started the petition online:
For decades Weird Al has entertained fans, young and old, with his popular clever parodies and unique sense of humor. Having him headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show. would not only be overly accepted by the millions of views, but it would remain true to the standards and quality of the show business we have come to love and respect out of this prestigious event. The songs of artists that he is parodying could join him on stage to accompany, as well as other surprise appearances from well-known actors/actresses, adding more prestige and star power. The theatrics alone would be hilarious and a welcoming change, and draw a wider audience of fans that typically would not tune into the
championship game or half-time show.
If you want Weird Al and his amazing parodies to grace the biggest game of the entire NFL season, have your voice heard now and sign the petition!
