Fans Petition to Have Weird Al Headline Super Bowl Halftime Show

Fans Petition to Have Weird Al Headline Super Bowl Halftime Show

Fans want to see Weird Al perform at the halftime of the Super Bowl.

A lot of fans.

Change.org petition had over 59,000 supporters as of Thursday afternoon.

One of Weird Al's newest songs, Sport Song, was actually written because of other efforts to get the parody artist to the Super Bowl.

The petition explains its case:

"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."
