Katy Perry's Super Bowl halftime show will surely dazzle us with sequins and pyrotechnics, but before that happens, let's look back and see how far the halftime show has come. We went into the vaults and dug up vintage footage from Super Bowl halftime shows, and they are really really really weird.
Some things you'll see: '70s marching band nerds, George Burns, a sheik, a jetpack, Chubby Checker, and Micky Rooney giving zero fucks. So if anyone complains to you about tomorrow's halftime performance… Maybe show this to them? #progress.
