Coldplay reportedly tapped to play Super Bowl 50, and the Web is fuming
It doesn’t take a scientist to know that reaction was mixed.
When it was announced on Thursday that Coldplay would perform as the main attraction during Super Bowl 50 next February in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Internet exploded with joy. OK, it was mostly mockery.
Because while Coldplay might make mainstream fans who aren’t exactly diehard NFL supporters quite pleased, those who mostly tune in for the football weren’t quite as happy.
Coldplay is your Super Bowl halftime act. It could be worse. It could be Nickelback.

I’m not sure even Left Shark can save a Coldplay halftime show.

(Ah, we miss you, Left Shark.)
BTW, if any of you make that “You know how I know you’re gay” reference from 40 Year Old Virgin, so help me God……….

Half my timeline: “Haha Coldplay nobody likes them.”
Other half: “😍”

All might not be lost, though.
Until then, one can ponder one of the most important unknowable questions of our era.
Would you like Coldplay more if they were called Warmwork
