We learned the hard way that petitions aren't all that they're cracked up to be when we tried to outlaw Morrissey from touring
, but that doesn't mean we can't support any future attempts at righting wrongs. The latest petition brandished with the Baeble signature is one on Change.org that hopes to have Weird Al Yankovic headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show.
The petition's creator, Ed B. explains...
"For decades Weird Al has entertained fans, young and old, with his popular clever parodies and unique sense of humor. Having him headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show. would not only be overly accepted by the millions of views, but it would remain true to the standards and quality of the show business we have come to love and respect out of this prestigious event. The songs of artists that he is parodying could join him on stage to accompany, as well as other surprise appearances from well-known actors/actresses, adding more prestige and star power. The theatrics alone would be hilarious and a welcoming change, and draw a wider audience of fans that typically would not tune into the championship game or half-time show."
Following the release of Weird Al's 14th studio album Mandatory Fun
, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, we couldn't agree more there's a dire need to get an accordion-wielding Yankovic on that mid-field stage.
