Twitter Thinks Coldplay Was a Poor Choice to Headline the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show
On Thursday, the NFL announced that Coldplay will headline the Super Bowl 50 halftime show.
Not Taylor Swift, or Drake, or Justin Timberlake featuring Jay-Z and Beyoncé, or Kanye West featuring Nicki Minaj, or even Justin Bieber featuring Skrillex, Sia, and Ed Sheran.
Now, I’ve got nothing against Coldplay. But some acts just aren’t right for the Super Bowl. People love Adele, but nobody wants to hear “Hello” in the middle of a football game.
But hey, I’m not alone in this opinion. Pretty much everyone on Twitter thinks Coldplay is a poor choice to headline the Super Bowl 50 halftime show. And most them are a lot less kind than me.
Check it out:
Someone should run the concussion protocol on whoever picks Super Bowl halftime talent.

I respect the fact that the NFL hates it's fans. It knows we'll sit through anything during halftime #Coldplay

I wake up to find out Coldplay is playing halftime at the Super Bowl. I must have died and gone to Hell in my sleep.

Who would be a better #SB50 halftime act than Coldplay?

It’s going to be great when Coldplay only plays Outkast covers and makes EVERYONE unhappy.

I'd rather watch a gif of Justin Timberlake exposing Janet Jackson's breast on repeat for 30 mins than watch Coldplay.
