A Grammy-winning musical icon whose career has spanned decades, currently riding the momentum of a hit album? OF COURSE Weird Al Yankovic should play the Super Bowl! A Change.org petition last week closed with over 24,000 signatures, but in case the National Football League (or… the Grey Cup?) still aren’t convinced, here are 17 not-so-stupid reasons the Prince of Parodies would be a halftime hit.
1. He’s a good moustache drawer.
2. He is looking after Frances Bean Cobain while Courtney Love is who knows where.
3. He has an excellent command of the English language.
4. Exhibit B.
5. Even his bad grammar is genius
If you thought I didn’t know that I ended “Word Crimes” with a split infinitive… you don’t give me nearly enough credit.
