Pepsi announced the performer for the Superbowl Halftime Show yesterday and the internet wasn't feeling it AT. ALL.
After Madonna, Beyoncé, a surprisingly delightful Bruno Mars and Katy Per- sorry, LEFT SHARK AND MISSY ELLIOT, it has now fallen to Coldplay to deliver the half time goods in 2016. And even with the promise of UV lights, powder paint, laser lights and a potential cameo from Queen Bey, Twitter could not be satisfied.

After all those FIRE rumours, there were people who were truly baffled at the decision to choose Coldplay:

The Twitterverse has spoken.
