Coldplay Is Headlining The Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show And Twitter Is In A World Of Hurt About It
Coldplay, the British pop-rock band that you and your mother begrudgingly settle on listening to while on car trips together, is headlining the Super Bowl 50 halftime show at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, according to the Wall Street Journal.
It has been cool to shit on Coldplay for their bland, banal ditties, but sometimes Coldplay eases the wounds of a breakup better than even alcohol can. “Fix You” is a jam and any opinions to the contrary deserves 100 lashes.
I, for one, could give two shits about who performs at halftime because watching a musical performance on TV is like watching fireworks on your iPhone. But Twitter is not as forgiving, as the general consensus is very cold. Check out some of the most entertaining tweets below.
I wonder if Coldplay will play their slow song or their slow song at The Super Bowl Halftime Show

Only makes sense if the Super Bowl is played in a fucking elevator. https://t.co/P5GjNcoWz4

Coldplay is performing at Super Bowl 50. Hopefully Roger Goodell will turn the power off at Halftime like he did in Super Bowl XLVII.

Coldplay will be performing at halftime of Super Bowl 50. Nothing says American football like middle aged white guys from England.

The NFL may need to find a new act for the Super Bowl after Twitter murdered Chris Martin and the gang. RIP.
