I’m ready! I’m ready! The 2019 Super Bowl adds another thing to look forward to and that’s a song from the iconic Nickelodeon show, Spongebob Squarepants.
Fans of the famous sponge from Bikini Bottom remember the season 2 episode called “Band Geeks.” That was when Squidward was organizing a band to impress his longtime rival, Squilliam Fancyson. Although they had a rocky start, Spongebob convinced the band to work together and put on a performance of a lifetime. In the end, Spongebob and the band played a rock ballad called “Sweet Victory” and it became a memorable episode.
The 2019 halftime show will consist of the well known pop-rock band, Maroon 5. While they were preparing for the show, they have also been planning to sing “Sweet Victory” during their performance.
This was possible because of a petition organized by Change.org. The petition contained nearly 1.2 million signatures asking them to play the song at the Super Bowl, according to http://www.sportingnews.com.
Many of you may remember Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of Spongebob Squarepants. He passed away in November 2018 due to ALS. Playing “Sweet Victory” will be a tribute to him for his contributions to generations of children.
The staging will include a clip from the scene of the Spongebob episode and Rodger Bumpass, who voiced Squidward on the cartoon will introduce the halftime show, according to cnet.com.
For those who have been following the popular Nickelodeon show since childhood, tune in for 2019 Super Bowl tomorrow Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. on CBS.
