People Were Outraged at the Lack of Spongebob During the Super Bowl Halftime

The Super Bowl halftime show always gets a ton of attention despite largely being a boring medley of some artist's songs with a few guest appearances. But this year many fans were upset that the guest appearances didn't include Spongebob Squarepants.

Last year a petition began on demanding that the Super Bowl feature the song "Sweet Victory" from an episode of the popular cartoon show Spongebob Squarepants. The petition received more than 1.2 million signatures, and many people were putting pressure on Maroon 5, the musical act for yesterday's halftime show, to perform the song. For those who don't know, "Sweet Victory" is a song performed by the characters from the show when they're brought in to perform at a halftime show for the Bubble Bowl. 

In the lead-up to the Super Bowl, many media outlets were reporting that Maroon 5 was going to perform "Sweet Victory" during the halftime show. But when the show actually was underway, they simply used a clip of Spongebob to introduce Travis Scott.

Now, some people thought that this was really cool and a good nod to the "Sweet Victory" movement. After all, it would be sort of weird for Maroon 5 to play a song during an event being watched by over 100 million Americans that only people who watch a different cartoon would be aware of. But many people felt robbed of a full performance of "Sweet Victory."

To be fair, Maroon 5 probably didn't want to perform a song that was far superior to all their original songs.
