Who really lost the Super Bowl: Maroon 5 or NFL fans? | The Tylt
The Los Angeles Rams may have lost Super Bowl LII, but they weren't the only ones to suffer. Maroon 5's halftime performance was criticized before frontman Adam Levine took the stage and they didn't do much to change that early judgment call. Still, at least Maroon 5 got to leave the stadium afterward. Viewers across the world suffered through said halftime show, only to watch the lowest-scoring Super Bowl ever and a bunch of questionable commercials. Who took the biggest L? 🏈
Who really lost the Super Bowl: Maroon 5 or NFL fans?
Before they stepped onto the 50-yard-line of Mercedes Benz Stadium during the Super Bowl, Maroon 5 was already being roasted mercilessly as a safe option that would be mediocre at best.
They couldn't even deliver that.
Instead, fans were treated to exactly what they expected. A lackluster performance with very little soul, marred by frontman Adam Levine taking off his shirt (which many people didn't ask for). Judging from the reviews from outlets and Twitter, Maroon 5 did more harm to their brand than anyone else during the Super Bowl.
Maroon 5 had it bad, but at least they could immediately bolt after the stink they made. NFL fans had to sit through a dull halftime performance, then watch the Rams and Patriots fall over themselves in a Super Bowl debacle that felt more like torture than anything else.
Unlike Super Bowls of recent years, there was no epic goal-line stand, no improbable comeback or momentum-shifting trick play. There were a lot of sloppy passes, poor blocking and not a lot of points to celebrate. Fans waited for excitement that would never come; the promise of a high-scoring game shattered after more than 10 punts were kicked during the game.
No one suffered more than NFL fans at the Super Bowl.
