The NFL decided to make an early decision regarding its chamionship game. In a statement released today, the league announced that legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix would be playing the Super Bowl halftime show.
"We know that there may be some problems bringing him on stage, the first one being that he's dead," Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke. "However, we feel he'd be the perfect fit given our recent choice of artists. I'm sure everyone will be excited to receive this news."
Of course, Hendrix is bound to be pretty decomposed by now, but that didn't deter Goodell's enthusiasm.
"We'll probably need some makeup, but that's okay. Plus, plastic surgery these days can work miracles," he said.
Preparation to unearth the axe-swinging rocker will commence soon. Meanwhile, some former colleagues expressed excitement at the chance to be reunited with Hendrix.
"I don't know why him being dead is a problem," claimed former Jimi Hendrix Experience
drummer Mitch Mitchell. "People didn't mind it when Tom Petty played in Super Bowl XLII."
