Over 300K People Have Signed A Petition To Have NFL Preform ‘Spongebob’ Song At Super Bowl

On Monday, Spongebob Squarepants creator Stephen Hillenburg passed away at the age of 57.

In honor of his legacy, one brilliant fan came up with a plan to celebrate Hillenburg in the best wayne know how: by getting the song from that episode where Spongebob plays a halftime show into the actual upcoming Super Bowl 53.

The fan, Israel Colunga launched the petition on Change.org calling for “Sweet Victory” to be featured in the upcoming halftime show “as a tribute to [Hillenburg’s] legacy, his contributions to a generation of children and to truly showcase the greatness of this song.”


Apparently, the world agreed—the petition has already pulled in more than 300,000 signatures since it launched on Tuesday, and it’s still climbing.

The version of “Sweet Victory” that aired in SpongeBob was performed by a guy named David Glen Eisley. Unfortunately, Eisley probably won’t be playing the halftime show no matter how many signatures this petition gets, since Maroon 5 is already set to perform.
