Following the great success of the roll out of his latest album "Mandatory Fun", fans of Weird Al Yankovic are petitioning the National Football League to have him play the Super Bowl halftime show.

Weird Al released the videos from the album one by one over a week back in July, and one of the biggest hits among his fans was a song titled "Sports Song".

For decades Weird Al has entertained fans, young and old, with his popular clever parodies and unique sense of humor. Having him headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show. would not only be overly accepted by the millions of views, but it would remain true to the standards and quality of the show business we have come to love and respect out of this prestigious event. The songs of artists that he is parodying could join him on stage to accompany, as well as other surprise appearances from well-known actors/actresses, adding more prestige and star power. The theatrics alone would be hilarious and a welcoming change, and draw a wider audience of fans that typically would not tune into the championship game or half-time show.

As of the writing of this article, the petition has received over 66,000 signatures.
