The problem with the Super Bowl has always been too much football and too few nerds in Hawaiian shirts playing the accordion. One man hopes to fix this imbalance with his petition on Change.org for "Weird" Al Yankovic to play the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show.
The man who made the petition, Ed Ball, admits that he was drunk when he wrote it. "Yes, I submitted this after enjoying a few drinks," he wrote in an update to the petition, "and while I enjoy imbibing on occasion, I would get the same gratification seeing Weird Al perform at the Super Bowl even if I was sober."
People who signed the petition have commented things like "Weird Al brings out the best in us," and "The Super Bowl is a cultural icon. Weird Al is one of very few artists in our time that has a similar level of cultural influence."
Weird Al's latest album, Mandatory Fun, was his first album to hit #1 on the Billboard charts. Currently, the petition has 30,00 signatures. Everything's coming up weird.
