Best Superbowl Halftime Show

Tue Sep 18, 2007 9:28 am

Well since we had the Best Singing of the National Anthem (most of them at Super Bowl's) i figured we should have a best Super Bowl halftime show. Yes we all know that Janet Jackson's boob fell out of her shirt.  Wink

My vote is U2's 2002 performance in memory of the 9/11 attacks.

None. They all suck. I wish they would just have the usual time or only slightly more and spend some quality analysis time. I don't need to see some old farts or wrinkly women lip syncing along with 100's of lame dancers. Most people watching at home are off taking a dump or piss and eating.

Might as well include the first part:



And yes, that is the best halftime show that I have seen. None of the lip-synching crap, and they actually got into the performance.

Such things belong to the pre-game show, like it's done during World Cup or Olympic Games inaugurations or closings. It's totally pointless to have a half-time show, rough up the pitch in the process (which may hurt the teams when they play one way or another), just to entertain (or piss off like with the wardrobe malfunction) very few people on TV and those who care in the stadium. I stopped caring about these shows since the wardrobe malfunction, when the entire PC crowd went nuts and demanded more decency standards on TV. Hell, in Germany we have barely naked dancers performing live, or talkshows where girls flash their tits (all uncensored) on television and nobody is bitching about it.

Halftime is the time when people take a break from seating for 30 or 45 minutes, take a walk, get something to eat, go to the toilet, and/or listen to the TV people analyising the first half of the game.

Even if you're right, that sounds so wrong yet funny. I mean, who can go take a piss and eat at the same time?  rotfl   Wink

How the heck did they get that stage on the field during half time... and where was it stored in the mean time!? Or were they lowered from the ceiling...

all the sound cables... electrical cables... wiring... lights...

how the hell!?

The sets are broken down into pieces that are no more than 6 or 7 feet wide and 10 feet tall and quickly brought in from one of the corners of the stadium where the players enter (which usually is a straight path to an exterior gate or leads to a large staging area under the stands). The pieces are assembled in about 10 minutes usually.

To be honest with you, I would love to watch video of the halftime show sets being assembled. I would rather watch that than some fat-ass ex-player blathering on behind corporate logos about how one team is great and the other sucks ass.

Ewww. Steven Tyler ruining one of his best songs with Nelly, the shaved one, and the Backdoor Boys. I had done a good job of forgetting about that moment - why, KaiGywer, why?????????

I think it was pretty cool seeing all those people singing their song.

That's the worst one because of the aftermath of it. The country got its' collective panties in a bunch over a nipple. Imagine had she ripped off Justin Timberlake's pants and showed everyone his package? The whole country probably would have reverted back to the "squeaky clean" 1950s.......

I'm surprised that after Nipplegate the NFL didn't name "Up With People" as the permanent Halftime Show.....

- Parking lot drinking with your buddies
- A giant plate of hot wings
