Super Bowl XLIX Half Time Show – Weird Al?

 

 

It cannot be denied. Weird Al Yancovic has had a STELLAR back end of 2014.

 

 

I know, Al. You have!

 

 

 

Well, now, a fan has started a petition to have Weird Al be the headliner at the next Super Bowl.

 

 

“Having him headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show would not only be overly accepted by the millions of viewers,” the fan writes, “but it would remain true to the standards and quality of the show business we have come to love and respect out of this prestigious event.” The petition has already over 4,000 signatures.

 

Weird Al

 

SPIN.com wants this set list, and I tend to agree!

 

And, in honor of the “Weird Al” petition, SPIN has put together a potential set list, with guests, for the NFL to consider.

SPIN‘s Dream Set List for a “Weird Al” Super Bowl Halftime Show:

“Perform This Way” with Lady Gaga
“Handy” with a new verse by Iggy Azalea
“Amish Paradise” with Coolio
“Eat It” with hologram Weird Al
“Another One Rides the Bus” with Queen as backing band and Adam Lambert as guest vocalist
“Girls Just Want to Have Lunch” with Cyndi Lauper
“Tacky” segues into “Happy” with Pharrell as all the special guests come out wearing the rapper’s signature hat as a grand group finale.

YYYAAAASSSS!

This Lady Can Dance!

Can this lady [and her mom jeans] come to tall the things?

Running Wild with Bear Grylls and Zac Efron

 

That is NOT Bear Grylls.

 

 

THAT is Bear Grylls.

 

 

That is NOT Zac Efron.

 

 

THAT is Zac Efron. [You're welcome, btw.]

 

The two of them together: Running Wild with Bear Grylls and Zac Efron.

 

 

Bear Grylls is apparently a survivalist. Meaning he lives off the land and nature to survive. Apparently he has a show on TV about it. Well now, he is taking his show to celebrities and sharing his skills with them. Let’s face it. Some of these celebrities need help learning how to do things on their own.

 

After meeting, the two hopped on a helicopter and then parachuted out into the Catskill Mountains.

 

 

They climbed some stuff. And then Bear Grylls made Zac Efron eat a worm.

 

 

They slept in a cave. All the while, maintaining Zac’s perfect coif and showing off his guns.

 

 

But seriously though, they had a good chat about Zac’s recent stunt in rehab. They discussed how he just lived for the weekend and the feeling that he needed substances to make him happy. After he left rehab, he says it’s a struggle to not let those substances take control. And that we should all live in the moment.

 

“Look at my muscles and hair. Oh, yeah. My teeth are still good right? Drinking is bad.”

 

After a breakfast of “fern tea,” the two headed out on their next adventure. They came to a cliff. Luckily, some strange force had left a rope for them to climb across on. They used some sort of military move.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The whole time, I am thinking, “Don’t kill Zac Efron. Please, don’t kill Zac Efron…” Can you imagine the riot that would happen if Bear Grylls killed Zac Efron?

 

Then this happened.

 

Zac efron NBC-taking off shirt

 

Zac Efron NBC-Shoulders

 

ZAC EFRON NBC- CHEST HAIR

 

 

Yay! They made it! More of Zac being proud of his muscles. [Don't get me wrong, if I looked like that, I'd be half naked all the time and flexing, too]

 

 

Things we’ve learned from this:

A. Bear Grylls is English.

B. Zac Efron survived stupid survalists.

C. Zac Efron is VERY proud of his guns.

D. Zac Efron is the All-American Boy-Next-Door.

E. I find Zac Efron even more adorable.

F. One More Time:

 

 

By the way, Channing Tatum will be on this show, too.
