After the NFL Superbowl reportedly began asking for artists to pay to play their famous half time show, and You Me At Six have responded in the most hilarious way possible. Anyone for a game of proper football?
The band have penned this open letter to the NFL, which outlines a three-tiered offer that involves playing the half time show, getting involved themselves or getting the ball on the floor and stop playing pretend football. We can totally justify setting up a Kickstarter for this, right?
We're sorry to hear that you're in such dire financial straits. While Coldplay and Rihanna mull your offer, we're here to help with a multi-tiered proposal:
1. For $2 Million: We get to play the upcoming halftime show.
2. For $10 Million, one of us gets to quarterback a set of downs for the team of our choosing.
3. For $40 Million, the Super Bowl will be played with English football rules, where you must use your feet, and an actual ball.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts once you've had a chance to review. We welcome any of the Super Bowl committee to attend one of our upcoming American concerts. Our tour kicks off September 15th at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA.
