NFL Gears Halftime Show Towards Elderly, British Audience

November 12, 2009

Nearly a decade after Justin Timberlake gave Janet Jackson’s breasts a surprise cameo during Super Bowl 38 (or XXXVIII for you roman numeral purists), the NFL has decided to once again avoid booking a relevant or modern act for their halftime show - instead electing to sign a foreign band that now specializes in CSI theme songs.

The Who, a group with most members eligible for Social Security benefits, will be the main act at the 2010 Super Bowl, thanks to Roger Goodell’s recently launched “War on Fun.”

For those keeping score at home, this now leaves Prince, Tom Petty, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, and The Who as the last five Super Bowl performers, giving all seven elderly men who are able to stay up past the second quarter an opportunity to see some of the coolest acts from the late 1970s.
