After more than half a million people petitioned for Spongebob to perform ‘Sweet Victory’ at this year’s SuperBowl Halftime Show, the lovable sponge finally made it to the event, although not in the way everyone expected.
Spongebob and the squad were relegated to a brief cameo during the intro of the Maroon 5-led event.
SpongeBob & Squidward made it to the #Superbowl ?

The clip comes from the iconic episode ‘Band Geeks’ which saw the Bikini Bottom squad perform the song ‘Sweet Victory’ at the ‘Bubble Bowl’ halftime show.
But while the fans finally (sorta) got what they wanted, many were disappointed as they actually wanted the song to be performed instead of a 5-second clip.

The creator of SpongeBob fucking DIES, thousands of people petition for Sweet Victory played at the Super Bowl, it seems like they’re down.
We get 3 seconds of a poorly reanimated snippet from Band Geeks. The part that’s, you know, not the actual song being performed.

Best part of the whole halftime show was Spongebob opening for Travis Scott

But hey, if you thought this year’s Super Bowl was lackluster, at least you’ll always have this classic to fall back on.
