Weird Al Fans Are Petitioning for Him to Perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show

weirdal_tackyBetween his new album, eight music videos, and #1 spot on the Billboard charts, Weird Al is definitely having a great year, and now fans want to make sure next year is just as big for Yankovic by creating a Change.com petition to have him perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. The petition reads:

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.

The petition is set to meet its goal of 5,000 signatures any minute now (you can sign it here), so hopefully this idea comes to fruition next year. Maybe Yankovic will invite Jon Daly to do a live performance of "Abracadabralifornia" too — one can dream, right?
