Each year, the Super Bowl attracts more than 100 million viewers in the United States. Some of them tune in for the game, and others for a spectacular Super Bowl halftime show. In case you didn’t watch this year’s Super Bowl LIII, you might regret that decision since the halftime show included some great moments including Maroon 5’s medley of biggest hits, Travis Scott and Big Boi’s performances, and cameo from SpongeBob SquarePants.

Back in November, fans of the popular Nickelodeon’s show started a petition that NFL honors the SpongeBob SquarePants creator Stephen Hillenburg, who passed away late last year. The petition’s original aim was to get SpongeBob’s performance of “Sweet Victory” on the halftime show. This performance dates back to 2001’s episode “Band of Geeks,” which revolves around a marching band performing at the Bubble Bowl, Bikini Bottom’s nod to Super Bowl.

While fans failed to get what they wanted, producers of Super Bowl LIII halftime show still decided to give a small tribute to Hillenburg and SpongeBob by providing a short tribute and airing a clip from the show before Travis Scott took the stage.
