Maroon 5 Is Getting Trolled for Their Super Bowl Halftime Show
When the big game rolled around, Maroon 5 took the stage to play some of their biggest hits with (very) brief interludes from Travis Scott and Big Boi. Social media was full of jokes about the performance...
After the NFL was turned down by a number of performers for its stance on the player kneeling controversy led by Colin Kaepernick, the League settled on Maroon 5 as the headliner for the Super Bowl LIII halftime show. There was even some bonus controversy that the League didn't select any of the many great artists from Atlanta, where the game was played, to headline the event.
When the big game rolled around, Maroon 5 took the stage to play some of their biggest hits with (very) brief interludes from Travis Scott (introduced by SpongeBob SquarePants) and Big Boi. The reaction to the band's performance was not positive. Social media was awash with jokes about the performance, Adam Levine's tracksuit, Levine's lack of clothing later on, and SpongeBob's brief appearance sans "Sweet Victory."
Here are some of the funniest reactions to the 2019 Halftime Show on social media.
I know nothing about Maroon 5, but I did recognize that last song because I have often been to Walgreens.— phillip anderson (@phillipanderson) February 4, 2019
They invited Adam Levine to the barbecue and it’s not going as planned. He brought the potato salad with raisins in it.— Martellus Bennett (@MartysaurusRex) February 4, 2019
yeesh if this is what they came up with for Maroon 5 I don't even want to know what Maroons 1 through 4 sounded like.— Lincoln Michel (@TheLincoln) February 4, 2019
I don’t want to spoil the ending of the halftime show but whatever: Adam Levine throws a handful of CVS gift cards at the crowd.— Louis Virtel (@louisvirtel) February 4, 2019
I no longer have a crush on Adam Levine and feel great relief at this time— Megan Reynolds (@mega_hurt) February 4, 2019
Adam Levine is dressed like a lesser Sopranos character— Dana Schwartz (@DanaSchwartzzz) February 4, 2019
Maroon 5 feels like music that old people think teens like— Mike Drucker (@MikeDrucker) February 4, 2019
Adam Levine looks like if Target designed a rock star.— Claire Suddath (@clairesuddath) February 4, 2019
The band was even used to take a potshot at the low-scoring game.
Yeah. A lot of people don't have this year's performance ranking among the all-time best Halftime performances.
