Looks like Weird Al fans want some mandatory fun at Superbowl 2015!

Ed Ball from the state of Washington created a petition on for professional parody cover artist Weird Al to perform at the Superbowl XLIX Halftime show next year.

The petition only needed a little over 1,000 signatures, but it now has almost 50,000.

His petition reads:

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.

Ball is overwhelmed with the support for his petition. When it hit 20,000 signatures, he wrote this message:


I most definitely would not mind dancing to “Word Crimes” during Superbowl Halftime next year.

Hopefully Weird Al’s publicist makes this happen!
