In honor of the creator of SpongeBob Squarepants, who died recently, a fan started a petition to get "Sweet Victory" to be performed at the Super Bowl halftime show. That petition now has 600,000 signatures.

"Sweet Victory" is arguably the most memorable song from the long-running animated series. It was actually performed at the Bubble Bowl, the show's version of the Super Bowl.

The show's creator, Stephen Hillenburg, died last Monday of Lou Gehrig's disease, also known as ALS. He was 57.

"As a tribute to his legacy, his contributions to a generation of children, and to truly showcase the greatness of this song, we call for Sweet Victory to be performed at the Halftime Show," organizer Isreal Colunga said on the petition webpage.
