If you happen to’re questioning why that will even be a factor, let me catch you up. The creator of Spongebob Squarepants, Stephen Hillenburg, died in November, 2018. Not too lengthy after a petition was began on Change.org that garnered numerous consideration. The title? Have “Candy Victory” Carried out on the Tremendous Bowl. The petition has over 1.1 million signatures as of this writing.
“As a few of you might or might not know, Stephen Hillenburg—the creator of Spongebob Sqaurepants—has handed away lately,” the petition web page reads. “As a tribute to his legacy, his contributions to a technology of kids, and to actually showcase the greatness of this music, we name for Candy Victory to be carried out on the Halftime Present.”
Will Candy Victory be performed on the halftime present?
Clearly the Change petition is not something official, nevertheless it did generate sufficient consideration that it looks as if this would possibly really occur.
The most important clue we have now is Maroon 5’s teaser for the efficiency, which included a quick look by the square-bottomed sponge.

There’s additionally a 3rd piece of proof, which entails Squidward’s voice actor, Rodger Bumpass. In a Fb submit screenshot (his account is personal) he wrote, “To all Spongebob followers!!! Tune into the Tremendous Bowl as a result of Squidward will get to introduce the halftime leisure!!!!”
He additionally wrote down beneath within the feedback, “It is a very quick piece however what the heck, it is the Tremendous Bowl!!!”
There’s been no official assertion from the individuals concerned on whether or not this may really occur, however we not less than know Spongebob (or quite, Squidward) will be concerned. The thriller is how or how a lot? Will there simply be a Squidward voiceover or a Spongebob mascot within the background of the efficiency? Or will we really get to take heed to “Candy Victory” just like the petition asks for?
We’ll have to attend to seek out out because it appears unlikely we’ll get any official phrase. Confirming this earlier than it occurs looks as if it’d break the shock.
And only for enjoyable, you’ll be able to watch “Candy Victory” once more beneath.
