If you’re a fan of massive pyrotechnical displays, 30-second song melodies, and the potential for a nipple to “accidentally” make an appearance on live television, then Super Bowl Halftime Shows were made for you.
This year, the Super Bowl LV Halftime Show starred none other than whoever “The Weeknd” is, (just kidding, I kinda know who he is, a little bit. Or at least enough to make jokes about the show.)
Anyway, a tradition as old as Twitter itself is roasting the Super Bowl Halftime Show in real-time, and despite the pandemic, that’s one thing that hasn’t changed this year. Especially given how weird and super-spreader-y the whole thing was.
Here are the best and the funniest we could find (so far…)

6. Said in a dad voice, but also 100% true.
I’m not spelling The Weekend like that.
