A petition was started on Change.org to pay tribute to Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of Spongebob Squarepants, who recently passed away.  

It calls for the NFL to perform the song “Sweet Victory” at halftime of the Super Bowl.

The petition, which currently has over 400k signatures, reads:

As some of you may or may not know, Stephen Hillenburg—the creator of Spongebob Sqaurepants—has passed away recently. As a tribute to his legacy, his contributions to a generation of children, and to truly showcase the greatness of this song, we call for Sweet Victory to be performed at the Halftime Show.

I’m sure this is exactly the kind of thing the creators of Change.org had in mind when they created their petition platform.  

For the NFL, this could work as a plan C if Maroon 5 decides to follow Rihanna and pulls out from the halftime show.
