Those of us who are unphased by the actual football part of the Super Bowl prefer to look forward to the halftime show performances. Every year showcases an insanely famous musical artist or even multiple if we’re lucky.
Past performances have included the likes of Prince, Paul McCartney, Beyonce, and Justin Timberlake to name a few.
This year, the 53rd annual Pepsi halftime show featured Maroon 5 with guest appearances by Travis Scott and Big Boi.
While it seemed like a solid lineup, fans were less than impressed with the performance and took to Twitter to mercilessly roast Maroon 5.

Theory: They made this halftime this bad in order for the game to look good by comparison.

The way Adam Levine looks when he is sort of half-dancing very near a famous rapper. That’s how I feel all the time.

They invited Adam Levine to the barbecue and it’s not going as planned. He brought the potato salad with raisins in it.

I don’t want to spoil the ending of the halftime show but whatever: Adam Levine throws a handful of CVS gift cards at the crowd.

I no longer have a crush on Adam Levine and feel great relief at this time

I know nothing about Maroon 5, but I did recognize that last song because I have often been to Walgreens.

Adam Levine looks like if Target designed a rock star.

Viewers were also very unhappy that the clip of Spongebob’s “Sweet Victory”, an ode to Stephen Hillenburg’s recent passing, was only played for a few short seconds.
