Unless you live under a rock, you either heard or even watched the 2019 Superbowl last night. If you are like the rest of us you might have been a bit disappointed about how anti-climatic it was. Not only just the game but the halftime show as well. It started with an opening by Maroon 5, where they performed nostalgic songs from the band’s glory days, like “Harder to breathe” and “this love.” The aesthetic quickly changed when Travis Scott was introduced by a clip of Spongebob Squarepants and the opening to Spongebobs iconic song “Sweet Victory” began to play before Travis Scott started playing Sicko Mode. Despite Cardi B being featured on the latter she ultimately refused to perform to stand in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, which led to an unexpected performance by Outkast’s Big Boi who performed iconic songs from Outkast’s career.

Despite all the performances people still hit the internet with one question; “why wasn’t the full version of Sweet Victory performed?” Many Spongebob fans were campaigning for them to perform the song which was featured in a 2001 episode called band geeks that SpongeBob performed at the bubble bowl. Fans wanted to see this to honor the voice of Spongebob, Stephen Hillenburg, who passed away last year.

Memes and jokes aside, what do you think of them neglecting Spongebobs iconic performance that so many fans anticipated?
