This past week a story broke about the NFL allegedly instituting a pay-to-play policy for the 2015 SUPER BOWL halftime show asking finalists COLDPLAY, RIHANNA,and KATY PERRY to pay some type of financial contribution for their performances (NET NEWS 8/20). Consequently, PROSPECT PARK's British rock band YOU ME AT SIX has made an offer to the league, which they have outlined in the following open letter:
We're sorry to hear that you're in such dire financial straits. While COLDPLAY and RIHANNA mull your offer, we're here to help with a multi-tiered proposal:
1. For $2 Million: We get to play the upcoming halftime show.
2. For $10 Million, one of us gets to quarterback a set of downs for the team of our choosing.
3. For $40 Million, the Super Bowl will be played with ENGLISH football rules, where you must use your feet, and an actual ball.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts once you've had a chance to review. We welcome any of the SUPER BOWL committee to attend one of our upcoming American concerts. Our tour kicks off SEPTEMBER 15th at the TROUBADOUR in LOS ANGELES, CA.
YOU ME AT SIX
