“SpongeBob Squarepants” fans seeking to get the infamous “Sweet Victory” ballad played at Super Bowl LII might finally have it happen thanks to the halftime performers Maroon 5.
Maroon 5 will play the halftime show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Feb. 3. When the band tweeted a promotional video of the announcement on Jan. 13, SpongeBob made a brief appearance.
The petition urging “Sweet Victory” to be played at the halftime show was created in November before Maroon 5 was officially announced as the event's performers. It came in the wake of show creator Stephen Hillenburg death’s in November.
“As some of you may or may not know, Stephen Hillenburg—the creator of Spongebob Sqaurepants—has passed away recently,” the petition read. “As a tribute to his legacy, his contributions to a generation of children, and to truly showcase the greatness of this song, we call for Sweet Victory to be performed at the Halftime Show.”
As of Friday, the petition has garnered more than 1 million signatures.
It’s unclear whether Maroon 5 would play the song, but the SpongeBob hint has many believing they would go through with it.
