Chris Martin and Coldplay Better Stay Off the Internet Today

So: thoughts on Coldplay’s halftime performance at the Super Bowl? I thought it was a bad decision to book them in the first place. Not that I find anything wrong with Coldplay; it’s just they don’t exactly scream “NFL football,” do they?

The Internet’s verdict is in and it’s not pretty. Here are some random tweets that went by in my feed.

Mind you, the whole halftime event has been panned, too. Fox didn’t like it, either. And the memes just keep on coming.

And is it just me or were the shows better in the past? I can’t tell. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga got good reviews for her national anthem.
