Lady Gaga Jumping From The Roof And That Drone Light Show Didn’t Exactly Happen Like We Thought It Did

Apparently the people inside the stadium at Super Bowl LI saw a slightly different and less exciting halftime show from Lady Gaga than the rest of us did on television.

Turns out that Lady Gaga didn’t really jump from the roof of the stadium on Sunday. Her “260-foot leap” was actually pre-recorded. In reality, and anyone inside the stadium knew this, she was actually suspended about halfway up and then lowered on to the stage.

Still, pretty batshit crazy of her to do, but that’s not what we all thought we saw on TV.


Also, that very impressive light show that those 300 drones put on? Yeah, that didn’t happen live either. (Told you the people in the stadium didn’t get to see as good a show as we watching on TV did.)

Because of Super Bowl security measures and FAA regulations there was no way they were going to let 300 drones fly around over the top of 80,000 people.

So that too, I am sorry to say, was also pre-recorded.
