Finally was able to get in.

Voted!

Oh god yes... I'd actually *watch* the Super Bowl if Al were performing.
 
2012-02-10 01:19:31 PM

HAMMERTOE: The best thing about this idea: W. Al would care enough about it to make an entirely original show up just for the occasion, and it would be awesome. He could lampoon the hell out of the NFL and everybody would love it all the more. Heck, he could simply parody half-time acts of years gone by and it would be awesome. (Imagine his take on a "wardrobe malfunction"!)


12 minutes of rock-polkas would be awesome

HAMMERTOE: parody half-time acts of years gone by


I believe he's got a bunch of Prince parodies written, that Prince preferred Al not put on albums. Could bust one of those out.

/though something original about football would be awesome

(Imagine his take on a "wardrobe malfunction"!)

I would not at all be surprised if he wore tear-away pants so at some point when the camera's right in front of him (and below, on the ground looking up to his stage) he tears his pants off -- no drawers -- and shakes his junk right at the camera 7' away

/which would be awesome
 
2012-02-10 01:21:49 PM
Weird Al would knock that shiat out of the park

Would be better if he wore a sock. (Though "Bedrock Anthem" isn't quite good enough to perform at the Super Bowl IMO).

Nuclear Monk: Forget that...I want THEM to play Captain's Wife Lament for the Super Bowl.


As awesome as that would be, we all know there isn't a chance in fuzzy hell.

Nugget Man, on the other hand...
 
2012-02-10 01:22:58 PM
Al's parents would be proud!
 
2012-02-10 01:25:00 PM
I judge popular music acts based on their willingness to let Weird Al parody them.

Nirvana: cool.
Coolio: douche.
Chamillionaire: cool.
Prince: douche.

etc.
 
2012-02-10 01:25:55 PM
Um, no. Get Bowie. He's still alive. Kidnap him if you have to. That man needs to keep performing!!!

Nuclear Monk: Forget that...I want THEM to play Captain's Wife Lament for the Super Bowl.


Dude, they only have 12 minutes for the halftime show. They would never be able to squeeze that song down that short.

dittybopper: //Second heaviest version of "Hava Nagila", after Anthrax's "I'm The Man".


How the fark did I not realize this sooner? "I'm the Man" is "Hava Nagila". "Hava Nagila" is "I'm the Man". Geez, I gotta sit down for a moment...

/Watch the beat!
 
2012-02-10 01:30:50 PM
Hell yes. Was talking about this during the halftime show this year, actually.

2012-02-10 01:31:17 PM
He would need to do one of his Prince parodies that Prince won't give him permission to put on an album, and he needs to parody Prince's penis guitar halftime show by dangling an accordion in front of him.
 
2012-02-10 01:31:21 PM
Link farked for me.
 
2012-02-10 01:33:30 PM
Whoops, link messed up. Here.

natas6.0: Madonna was unwatchable. I'm so sick of talentless grannies on the field.
Cee lo upstaged her before a word came out of his mouth.

Luckily, I was watching it at my friends pad.
And they were having a swinger/s&m meet at the time.
ropes and spankins and wonderful acts all through the rooms.
There was even a violet wand dildo!
Those drowned out the gap-toothed hag.

And my guacamole was damned good
(caramelize the onions ifor it)


I was all set to lambast you for the Madonna comments, but then I finished reading your post and deduced it was intended as some variety of avant-garde poetry or a performance art piece, or something else equally unfathomable. By the time I finished reading it I felt like I'd walked into a Salvador Dali painting or something.
 
2012-02-10 01:35:51 PM
Keep on signing, suckers. The record company owned by the media corporation broadcasting the NFL will display exactly what they want.

Nice try, though
 
2012-02-10 01:37:35 PM
Want "All My Rowdy Friends" parody.

Also:
Giselle, My Belle
Chris Berman at Ground Zero
Somewhere Over the Tebow

The possibilities are endless
 
2012-02-10 01:39:31 PM
I would love for this to happen, but have online petitions ever swayed the NFL to do something logical?
 
2012-02-10 01:40:18 PM
I fully support this. A halftime show that would be fun and not some kind of world shattering musical event like they try to portray it as
 
2012-02-10 01:42:05 PM
♫ I have tickets to see Paul and Storm live tonight (with John Hodgman!) at the Birchmere, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies. ♫
 
2012-02-10 01:42:50 PM
Al Yankovic, yes. With pleasure.

Paul and Storm are lame, unfunny retards who can kiss my ass and go hungry. I wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire. They are the sole reason I was not at the Fark party last year and are the sole reason I am not going this year. They are professional coat-tail riding leeches with no perceivable talent of their own. Scum of the earth.

Oh fark yes. Fark fark fark yes.
 
2012-02-10 01:52:18 PM
I'm in.

Besides, I like his name.
 
2012-02-10 01:52:44 PM

amirsh_33: Wardrobe malfunction parody? Can't wait.


During "Perform This Way".

But, not gonna happen. The Super Bowl halftime is notoriously derpy precisely because it's got all the symptoms of design by committee. It's almost certain none of the MBA-carrying marketing execs on the planning committee have even heard of "Weird" Al and don't give a fark about anyone who does.
 
2012-02-10 01:53:14 PM

gamempire: Yes x10000.

This NEEDS to happen. To bad the kids these days don't know who Weird Al is.


Actually, one of my daughter's friends was in the car, and she was singing along to one of my Weird Al cds word for word, and to an obscure song. It was quite refreshing.

/So there's one...
//Love "Why Does This Always Happen to Me." (:

I Have The Touch of a Shocked Monkey: have online petitions ever swayed the NFL to do something logical?


Well, they do have a playoff. . .
 
2012-02-10 01:56:34 PM
Hells to the yeah. Signed!
 
2012-02-10 01:56:48 PM
And he can do a show with just take offs of prior Halftime performers.

It would be perfect.
 
2012-02-10 01:58:35 PM

Tommy Moo: Um, no. Get Bowie. He's still alive. Kidnap him if you have to. That man needs to keep performing!!!


Bowie is retired. He will not perform anymore, most likely due to his heart condition. Sad, but true.
 
2012-02-10 01:58:38 PM

Vash's Apprentice: lake_huron: cwheelie: how about no?

Need to continue to offer culturally relevant acts that the kids can relate to like The Knack or ZZ Top.Could go with Kid-n-Play for the urban market

Who pissed in your Wheaties?

FInally a reason to tune in to the Super Bowl, 'cos I don't care how many baskets the Mighty Ducks make. Or whatever.

You might want to have that sarcasm meter looked at.

/I'm all for it
//Especially if it takes place in Albequerque
//Yes, I had to look up how it's spelled


And yet you still got it wrong?

Or is that the joke....

/lives in Albuquerque

2012-02-10 02:03:17 PM

ZZ Top would be farking awesome.

They've changed their name to ZZ Beyblade.

/Once saw ZZ Dreidel perform at a bar mitzvah
//Second heaviest version of "Hava Nagila", after Anthrax's "I'm The Man".


How about Dread Zepplin? Gotta love reggae versions of Zep
Brave Combo? Polka punk classics!

Didn't know they were fans.

I've seen him two times in concert - each was spectacular. Signed and Shared.

gamempire: Yes x10000.

This NEEDS to happen. To bad the kids these days don't know who Weird Al is.


My kids have all of Al's cd's on their iPods. We would be all over this.

My 17 yr old just said that he's have to start watching.

/I signed, as did my eldest child.

Richard Flaccid: I'm picturing 100 dancers dressed in amish garb for Amish Paradise followed by 100 obese dancers in skimpy outfits for Eat it!

Hell yes!

All of the Packer fans at the game will love this!


Yes, yes we will!
 
2012-02-10 02:19:10 PM
SUPPLIES!!!
 
2012-02-10 02:20:31 PM

Coriantumr: Also, here's the list of douches who hate Weird Al and freedom.

Billy Joel. Back before Weird Al decided he was going to only do gentle parodies, he recorded a roast of Billy Joel to the tune of "It's Still Rock and Roll To Me." Al called the song "It's Still Billy Joel To Me" and went after Joel's music for being lame, derivative and generic.


It's funny because it's true.
 
2012-02-10 02:21:13 PM
And my axe!
 
2012-02-10 02:23:10 PM
Anything would be better than the has-been "stars" they usually try to peddle off as still being relevant.
 
2012-02-10 02:23:31 PM
where are the trolls hating on Weird Al? Is it possible that even they have some lines they won't cross to get attention?

/"even worse" and "off the deep end" changed my life forever
//trigger happy ftw
 
2012-02-10 02:26:35 PM

gamempire: Yes x10000.

This NEEDS to happen. To bad the kids these days don't know who Weird Al is.


Mine do. They also know who Johnny Cash, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Charlie Daniels, They Might Be Giants and Black Sabbath are. Now that they're teenagers, they can choose their own music, but I made sure to expose them to 'real' music first... Also, I wanted them to have a more rounded base to draw from.

I would TOTALLY be on board with Weird Al at halftime. Saw him in concert once, maybe not in my top 5, but definitely in my top 7 or so. Great show, tons of energy, a costume change for every song that doesn't hold up the show, and nothing but fun.
 
2012-02-10 02:36:08 PM

Hollywood Cole: fark YES


This. So very much this.
 
2012-02-10 02:37:23 PM
I would vote x a million for this.

It'll never happen tho. The NFL lacks a sense of humor.
