SpongeBob To Actually Perform Iconic Track During Superbowl

One of the beloved episodes of “SpongeBob SquarePants,” titled “Band Geeks,” is set to come to life during Nickolodeon’s first-ever Super Bowl broadcast. CBS revealed that SpongeBob and the Bikini Bottom band will open the broadcast with a performance of “Sweet Victory.”

However, the rendition will differ from the original 2001 animation, as the sequence will be reanimated in CGI, showcasing an uncanny-valley look for the characters.

Despite the slightly unnerving new design, the iconic song is expected to captivate audiences, marking a unique start to a real Super Bowl broadcast.

Nick’s kid-friendly Super Bowl broadcast will feature several of the network’s well-known characters hosting a version of the game.

While this will be SpongeBob’s first performance during the Super Bowl, it’s not the first time the fan-favorite episode has been referenced. In 2019, Squidward introduced the halftime show in a brief clip.

Fans had long hoped for “Sweet Victory” to receive a Super Bowl spotlight, leading to a Change.org petition in 2018, which garnered over 1.2 million signatures and eventually resulted in Squidward’s appearance at the Super Bowl a few months later.
