Despite the disagreements over who should play the Super Bowl Halftime Show, there’s one performer everyone can agree on: Spongebob Squarepants.
The Super Bowl has been having some trouble finding supporting acts after Maroon 5 was announced as the halftime show headliner. Taking place in Atlanta, Super Bowl 53 has been criticized by artists for both political reasons and for not bringing on a hip-hop headliner.
In an attempt to squelch the arguments and honor Spongebob Squarepants creator Stephen Hillenburg, fans are urging the Halftime Show to add a performance of Spongebob’s rendition of "Sweet Victory." The track features in the iconic "Band Geeks" episode of Nickelodeon’s Spongebob, an iconic favorite among millennials.
Apparently, it’s such a fan favorite that well over a million people have signed a petition on Change.org supporting the idea of a performance. “As a tribute to his legacy, his contributions to a generation of children, and to truly showcase the greatness of this song, we call for Sweet Victory to be performed at the Halftime Show,” reads the petition.
