Why was SpongeBob’s ‘Sweet Victory’ snubbed at the Super Bowl?

Many Super Bowl watchers, however, were more unimpressed by what Levine wasn't wearing - with some declaring the shirtless last-quarter of his halftime performance the sweaty second coming of "Nipplegate". Then it was back to more Maroon 5... jams? Together with Scott, the National Football League is making a $500,000 donation to Dream Corps, an organizing focused on finding solutions for social change, founded by political commentator Van Jones.

In mid-January, Maroon 5 posted a video teasing their halftime performance, and fans noticed that it contained a brief clip of the titular sponge. With the game itself, came all of the emotionally loaded top-billed commercials, a lot of jokes about Tom Brady, and a halftime show performed by Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi.

SpongeBob SquarePants did make an appearance during Maroon 5's Super Bowl halftime show, , introducing Travis Scott playing his song "Sicko Mode".

The NFL's treatment of pro footballer Colin Kaepernick, after the player chose to sit during the National Anthem before games back in 2016, has sparked calls from fans and famous faces to boycott the event.

He performed in a flaming fake crater before Big Boi arrived in a classic vehicle and he sang his verse from "I Like The Way You Move" by Outkast.


"When the dream I had for 15 years is teased and then promptly crushed in front of my eyes", a user wrote.

Levine attempted to deflect those who were critical of the band's decision to take to the stage on Sunday night. He added: "I'm not in the right profession if I can't handle a little bit of controversy".

Fireworks heralded the beginning (and end) of Maroon 5's performance as they played on a stage in the shape of an M and started with their early hits Harder to Breathe and This Love. "We would like to move on from it and speak through the music".

During the game, some celebrities and members of the public used #ImwithKap on social media to express their decision not to watch the Super Bowl.

In 2017, the Twitter account @decentbirthday shared a screenshot of a text conversation in which they responded to an Uber driver's "I am here for you" message with an emotional response, unaware of who the text was from.
