SpongeBob Appears in Super Bowl Halftime Show

  • Published on Feb 4, 2019
  • One celebrity appearance exploded during the Super Bowl halftime show. More than a million fans signed a petition to include the "SpongeBob SquarePants" rendition of "Sweet Victory" in the show and their wish was granted. It happened after Maroon 5 sang some of its classic songs. The cameo was a tribute to the cartoon's creator, Stephen Hillenberg, who died in November after a battle with ALS. InsideEdition.com's Mara Montalbano (twitter.com/MaraMontalbano) has more.

    Yep Spongebob showed up for the Super Bowl..for like 10 seconds. Like everyone else I was disappointed that they didn’t play sweet victory. They could have been respectful and payed tribute to Stephen. If this isn’t the worst thing the NFL has ever done, I don’t know what is.

    All this, and for what? Some random rap song? WHY? Screw that! I don't even like rap. The late n great Stephen Hillenburg deserves for you to play *SWEET VICTORY* in his honor, damit!

    It's not a rendition. It's the original song.

    This short apprence of the introduction the characters did was not enough of a tribute to him they should have played at least some of the song and I was really thinking they were going to have them sing sweet victory and maybe even play the song from that episode. They could have had one of the performers sing sweet victory
