Help Petition For A Weird Al Super Bowl Halftime Show!

Help Petition For A Weird Al Super Bowl Halftime Show!

One of the live event staples of any year, the Super Bowl halftime show is infamous for performances by some of the music industry’s hottest performers including Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Prince and Madonna. But, if fans have their way, another name could be added to the list, that of Billboard chart topping artist and our dear friend, Weird Al Yankovic.

In a not-at-all bizarre twist, given the rabid fanbase the musician has gained over the decades, a fan campaign has been launched to make Weird Al the featured act at 2015’s NBC-hosted Super Bowl. The petition already features over 79,000 signatures since launching earlier this week, with the following message being sent to the NFL:



Have Weird Al Yankovic headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show.


[Your name]

Clean, simple and to the point.

Honestly, there’s nothing we want to see more than Weird Al headlining the most watched television event in history. It’d be a real opportunity for the NFL to cater to all demographics because, as his new bestselling album Mandatory Fun indicated, Weird Al speaks to anyone and everyone, especially after his #8videos8days campaign that took the internet by storm last month.

So please, NFL, for all of us, take these signatures seriously as a real opportunity to speak to the masses at large. Make “Weird Al” your featured act at Super Bowl XLIX’s halftime show, for the betterment of mankind.

How much do you want to see a Weird Al Super Bowl halftime show? Let us know in the comments below, and  sign the petition brethren!

    If you took all of Al’s music from the years past and had cameos of just some of the people he has mocked it would be without a doubt the greatest live show ever, and i’m pretty sure all would be on board,,, this MUST HAPPEN….

  6. Michael says:

    I think the petition will definately get the attention of the NFL now that it has more than 120000 signers, but he’s not going to be asked to play.  First of all, Al was not timely in the release of this album to coincide with this event, and secondly you got to have a top 40 hit song or it don’t happen. So if he don’t get one, it don’t matter, and it’s 20 times harder for a parodist to get a top 40 single than anyone else, so well see.  It’s possible, not probable.  However, Al has done that a couple times now so, who knows.

    I think if the NFL wants to continue to grow its brand then it has to take steps to include people not traditionally part of the usual fan base without alienating its loyal fans.  I think steps like this have already been taken with the introduction of pink jerseys to attract more female fans a few years back.  Weird Al could bring in more of the “nerd” population to the NFL. This could be a great thing, nerds commit more of their disposable income towards their interests than most others.  This could generate a lot of buzz talk and income for the NFL, and should be given a chance

  8. Eric Marley says:

    Yes! Do this! Do it now! If you believe in the sanctity of the halftime show… please explain yourself. If you just want to have a good time with a ridiculous event, go with Al.
