Join Movement: Replace Nickelback in Halftime Show on Thanksgiving

By Ernie Padaon

The petition calls on The Detroit Lions to replace Nickelback as the halftime show for the Thanksgiving game.

In less than 24 hours, more than 25,000 people have signed the campaign, many leaving quite funny responses such as:

I don’t want to be sitting around with my family and have to listen to even more annoying people.– Taylor, Bloomfield Hills, MI

I probably won’t even watch the game, but if i can help stopping one Nickelback gig, I’ll know I have done good work.– Colin, Australia

Detroit has suffered enough.– Brittany, Pinconning, MI

As a Canadian I sincerely apologize for Nickelback. We’re all really sorry up here.– Lloyd, Calgary, Canada

Tebow > Nickelback– Matt, Durham, NC

An alternative rock radio station in Calgary with a “No Nickelback Guarantee” is throwing their support behind the petition as well, ensuring Canadians also have their say.
