Nearly a million people want to see Spongebob in the Super Bowl

Spongebob Squarepants‘ creator may be gone, but he’s far from forgotten. A fan’s petition has garnered about 830,000 signatures as of this writing asking the NFL to have the character’s song “Sweet Victory” performed at the next Super Bowl halftime show. SpongeBob’s rendition was performed on the episode “Band Geeks,” which aired in the show’s second season in 2001. The character and his bandmates sang it at halftime of the fictional Bubble Bowl. 

Maroon 5 is reportedly headlining Super Bowl LIII’s halftime show in February, but “maybe the petition will inspire Adam Levine to belt out a few lines of the song in Hillenburg’s honor,” says one report. “At least 50,000 people out there know it’s the right thing to do.” Spongebob creator Stephen Hillenburg died in November of ALS at age 57.
