Five of the most memorable Super Bowl half-time shows – in GIFs

Posted at 3:15 pm, February 2, 2014 in Arts & Entertainment, Music & Nightlife

Hey hey sports fans, the moment you’ve been waiting for is nearly here. That’s right, the Super Bowl is upon us, and while we’re not particularly psyched about the Big Game itself (we’ve never been huge basketball fans), the half-time show has got us shaking our little fists with excitement.

If you’re like Billy Eichner (watch above) and are mostly looking forward to seeing the musical interlude (sadly, not Madge this year), here are five memorable moments from Super Bowls past to relive in GIF form. Will Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers slip us a nipple, heal the world and make it into the half-time hall of fame this Sunday Feb 2? We can only hope. Until then, enjoy…

1) The rude one: Janet Jackson + Justin Timberlake (2004) aka the ‘nipple slip’

2) The patriotic one: U2 (2002)

3) The purple one: Prince (2007)
