“Weird Al” Yankovic has been all over social media lately and his latest album, Mandatory Fun became the first number one album of his career. The renewed attention Yankovic has received led Ed Ball to petition the NFL to consider him for next year’s Super Bowl halftime show (scheduled to take place in Glendale, Arizona on February 1).

In his petition, Ball wrote:

“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.”

For the record, we love this idea! We’d even bet that it would wind up being one of the best choices for halftime the NFL has made in a LONG time!
