Fans of "Weird Al" Yankovic have started a petition on Change.org demanding that the wacky pop star be considered for next year's Super Bowl halftime show.
"Having him headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show would not only be overly accepted by the millions of views, but it would remain true to the standards and quality of the show business we have come to love and respect out of this prestigious event," fan "Ed B." from Seattle wrote in his somewhat awkwardly worded petition.
As of Wednesday morning, the petition--which looks like it went online Tuesday--had already garnered more than 4,500 signatures.
