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.

    I don't know if there could've been a better troll than to play sicko mode. I think it could've been better if it was just played through a cheap speaker without him appearing at all.

    I don’t get why they would hound Maroon 5 though. They played before, not after. It’s whoever did the scheduling.

    You make this seem a lot more positive than it really is. It was mostly negative. Stephen Hillenburg even said himself he wanted this song to play at the Super Bowl at halftime. I think it was really messed up that it didn't.

    "It was still a generous salute to a man who touched so many lives."
    I mean, if you call showing a 15-second clip introducing something that isn't even related to it "generous..."

    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.
