It would be the first halftime show in years that I'd actually care about seeing.

That's just what the Illuminati want you to think.

I think I speak for everyone with good taste when I say MAKE THIS HAPPEN, FOLKS.
 
2013-02-02 06:38:09 PM
I would love to see that.

But only if he performs in a vat of sour cream while wearing lederhosen.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: I think I speak for everyone with good taste when I say MAKE THIS HAPPEN, FOLKS.


I knew you would be behind this idea 100%.  As am I.  And he must perform "Albuquerque" in its entirety.
 
2013-02-02 07:01:34 PM
He should make his play list up by taking one song from each of the previous 5 half-time performers.

My nipples would explode with delight.

But that's really not important to this story.

I think this is the show the NFL needs

heck if they want something more hip, they can have LFMAO jointly perform with weird al

Indeed!

Like the article says, the multi-generational appeal of his act would be a winning combination with the diverse audiences who catch the Super Bowl.

Flight of the Concords just isn't that funny.  The Lonely Island, however, would be perfect.

Weird Al performing the Super Bowl Halftime Show would make it evident that we really are an enlightened species; there would be hope for mankind yet.

Complete with an on-field recreation of all events described, including torso boy.

I'm not sure what it would be like to get stabbed to death at a rave, but I'm pretty sure the Black Eyed Peas halftime show was a reasonable simulation of such a thing.

I dunno... Lonely Island censored to hell and back probably wouldn't sound that great. Unless you meant to just support Weird Al songs.

Maybe it's because of how absolutely horrible the party was that I went to for that Super Bowl, maybe it's because the Steelers got outplayed by Mr. Discount Double Check...but I just didn't think it was that bad of a halftime show.  I know something's wrong with me, but damned if I know what that may be....
 
2013-02-02 08:00:54 PM
That would make too much sense. Next year will be Taylor Swift, or perhaps Pitbull

Mileages vary, I guess.

To me, it was like getting stomped while watching a Tron movie.

Knowing them, BOTH.

Saw Weird Al back in the 80's, right after he released "Fat". I think I was in 5th grade. He was awesome back then, i'm sure he'd be awesome now.
 
2013-02-02 08:15:21 PM
Only if he brings Bob-O the clown onstage with him.

Parodies of the most well-known Super Bowl halftime shows in history!  I'd love to see his take on Nipplegate!

Have to understand: Our local pop station plays stuff that makes BEP seem like farking Tchaikovsky.  It's that bad.  So I may have a higher tolerance to them than most, even if I did inadvertently skip their gig at my college when they were first coming out (they opened up for Soul Coughing and Everclear on some Vans tour or something).
 
2013-02-02 08:25:11 PM
No
Fun

/ though I'd love to see him parody "Are you ready?"

Weird Al with Daft Punk. Make it happen!

Okay, Weird Al mashing it up with TMBG would be incredible.  Too bad we can't use a time machine to get pre-1997 BNL in on it too.

TMBG would be fantastic:

Birdhouse In Your Soul
You and Your Racist Friends
Anna Ng
Istanbul
Particle Man

I would love it. And it would be so reviled by most everyone else that it might put an end to the whole halftime BS for good.

AC/DC and FF are two acts that I can't believe haven't been asked to do it yet. Hell, AC/DC would've been better than the ghost of The Who that we got a couple of years ago. FF are doubly weird because it's a band that a) Is well known by 90% of the audience that watches the Super Bowl, b) Has an audience of mostly women (seriously- I've seen them five times, and the girl/guy ratio is always about 60/40) c) Is 99% clean, and d) Has been doing arena rock shows for close to 20 years.
 
2013-02-02 09:21:37 PM
They will never allow this. This is why we can't have nice things.

No, one chocolate saggey tit nearly destroyed the world. We must be protected.

He's probably the only act my parents, my brother and I can all agree on. He transcends Metal, Rock, Pop, and Rap fans.

Eddie knows better too from all the time that Vince avoids our good ideas (to swerve) but steals every single bad joke idea in a thread.  Bad Eddie

This needs to be the headline of the petition. As someone once stated, If you don't like Weird Al, you have no soul. Look at the guy. He has barely aged. Proof that being lighthearted and having a sense of humor is the key to long life.
