Yesterday we were delighted to learn that a drunk man in Seattle created a petition for “Weird Al” Yankovic to play the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime show. Apparently we weren’t the only happy ones, because thousands of fans have since added their support, hopefully bringing the “Tacky” singer one step closer to the 50-yard line. We can’t think of a better way to spend game day than watching the beloved accordion god perform his comedy classics. Sure, it’s an unorthodox choice, but he’s gotta be way better than these allegedly stadium-savvy stars who fumbled big time.

Some are obvious; i.e. her Gwen Stefani influence is massive. Others are a bit more surprising — Traci Lords? Really?
