He’s a known grammar Nazi with what may be described as an unhealthy obsession with Michael Jackson and Prince.
Let’s just say the fact Weird Al’s most recent album is No. 3 on the Billboard top 200 blows my mind — hasn’t he already had his day? But it appears I am in the minority.
Anyway, if you aren’t like me and you are a fan of Weird Al, you can sign a petition to support Weird Al playing as the halftime act at the Super Bowl.
Could it happen? I would sign a petition to prevent him from performing at the Super Bowl.
Here is how the guy who started the petition is justifying this:
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.
Will you sign the petition?
