Hmm... a bit of a stretch in bringing Sully into the mix, but as he probably had the same problem as Fergie when he was falling to his death, I guess I'll let it fly.

Fantastic!

They played half time at the CFL's Grey Cup. You won't regret this, well not entirely.

Who am I kidding. It'll be the worst Super Bowl half time show if recent memory.

You'd do better with the dog agility show. I wish that were an exaggeration. Maybe Justin Bie.... Can't finish that though.

Wow. "pee pee pants" GIS certainly does bring up the Fergie photo. It also brings up a lot of strange links. Be warned.

Prince was my favorite SB halftime show of all time. OF ALL TIME

This. "Purple Rain" amid actual purple rain due to the spotlights is the best halftime performance ever.

/don't give me shiat from the 9/11 Bowl

skylabdown: Two bands that would be great for SB halftime shows:

1. Ministry
2. They Might Be Giants


We're gonna play this game now?

Alright, I vote for Bad Religion and The Gaslight Anthem.

BEP is to hiphop what the Pontiac Aztec is to cars

nice subby..

so you think superbowl fans are into lip-synching auto-tuned pop bands?
Kind of like having Boyz 2 Men opening at the Daytona 500.

Yeah that was pretty bad... Then Lenny kravitz the next year in toronto's look we're important like an American city half time show wasn't much better. Although blue rodeo at last years was nice.

With Kevin Kolb at the helm, that's not going to happen for a long time.

The Black Eyed Peas? Jesus H. Christ, they wrote the worst song ever and they really really really really really suck live.

Am I the only one in this thread that thinks a dog agility show would be AWESOME for half-time ratings. Heck, puppy bowl on cable has been a hit. Guys like football, guys like dogs. This just plain works.

That's a great song to me, more out of the good feelings I associate with that song.

As far as worst song ever, clearly you've never heard about (new window)

"Kind of like having Boyz 2 Men opening at the Daytona 500."

With a crowd reaction much like Ashlee Simpson at the Orange Bowl,with more thrown beers.

The best thing Lewis Black has ever done was his bit on the infamous Super Bowl halftime show featuring Janet Jackson's titty, and how the country went insane after that.

The best line of it all, which perfectly captured the random bizarreness of that show, which was a total trainwreck, is this: "And then came Kid Rock. Because, why the fark not."
 
2010-09-17 12:55:57 AM  
I misread that as The Black Keys and got excited for a second.

See, I used to like that song. Then I heard this mash-up of it and fell in love. I can't even stand the original anymore.

I must be the only person not seeing the implications of the headline. All I know is they're terrible.

jake_lex: The best thing Lewis Black has ever done was his bit on the infamous Super Bowl halftime show featuring Janet Jackson's titty, and how the country went insane after that.


His other Super Bowl halftime bit is also high-quality.

"I have *NSYNC and Aerosmith...and I am confused."

I suppose Fergie won't be performing that "My Humps" ditty, because I might tune in for the national outrage.

Who the hell watches the super bowl halftime show? (poppity)

I don't care if Jesus Christ hisself came back to jam with Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, it would still be the suckinest piece of overproduced suck that ever sucked.

/OK, maybe I'd watch JC with Cash and Waylon

Wouldn't that be two-thirds?

Halftime is when you should be filling up the cooler with another flat of beer and fresh ice, throwing some dogs on the grill, and trying to login to your offshore betting account to place some second half wagers.

Ah who am I kidding, most of us will be fighting to make the same lame jokes in the fark discussion thread and then pat ourselves on the back for the amazing "simulpost" that occurs.

FiatJustitia: er, here (new window)


Dear Lord, I made it through about 30 seconds of that and am pretty sure I lost some brain cells in the process.

Oh and Black Eyed Peas were ok by me until they started getting lazy as fark in their songs. "Imma be, Imma be, Imma Imma Imma be" (repeat x35) Seriously..that's just awful.

Most mashups on the internet are shiat. This one is not.

The Country saw a nipple.

The only remedy was Peter Townshend's distended, pale belly.
 
2010-09-17 6:24:08 AM  
No, the perfect halftime show would be Alice Cooper singing "Dead Babies" while those little snots from the annual "Punt Pass & Kick" competition punt, pass, and kick ketchup-soaked Cabbage Patch Kids dolls into the audience.

I am posting from my phone, otherwise I would provide a link. Search Youtube for "it's so cold in the D". You won't be disappointed.

See, this is why everyone watches The Puppy Bowl at halftime.

Besides, anyone would be better than BEP, Metallica, ZZ Top, Snoop Dogg since he's family friendly, anyone.
 
2010-09-17 8:16:52 AM  
Great headline. As for the Black Eyed Peas halftime performance, I can't wait to not watch it.
 
2010-09-17 8:28:27 AM  
Van Halen should do it. Their last tour had a lot of energy, and everyone knows the songs.
 
2010-09-17 8:37:37 AM  
Crap, I was hoping Go West would perform this year.
 
2010-09-17 8:50:14 AM  
Bring back marching bands!

Why not they did that song when they played at a grey cup (CFL championship) a few years ago.

Just came to say that Prince was the best halftime show of my lifetime. The wife barely even knows who Prince is, yet she was memorized by his huge, purple guitar behind the billowing sheet.

/was a really good show
//His cover of "Best of You" was awesome
///my wife loves huge, purple guitars apparently
