The best way to watch the Super Bowl is by reading tweets. Because that way you don’t actually have to watch the Super Bowl.
I’ve got nothing against football. Obviously I don’t, I’m Southern. But the Super Bowl is usually such a bust, and the thought of sitting through yet another Tom Brady win was sickening. So instead of watching the game I just periodically looked at my phone to see what people were saying about it. Today I woke up and realized I had liked enough tweets about the game to fill out a tweet gallery, and so here we are: with a (not that) comprehensive collection of the funniest (to me) tweets about this year’s football game.
Check out all of those tweets below, and follow all the smart, funny, respectable people who wrote ‘em.
Every year I watch the Super Bowl and explain to my kids what network TV is.

Sad to say that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Super Bowl players won’t be starting the game the traditional way, taking turns spitting on the ball and rubbing it in each other’s mouths and eyes

Instead of military jets at the Super Bowl, they should just do a flyover with a crop duster full of Pfizer juice.

summarizing the super bowl for my best friend by saying “it’s basically about these two groups of adults that are like OBSESSED with this ONE ball”

[me, watching you hunker down for a few hours of TV coverage of the Super Bowl as I continue to amass resources in preparation for Disney+ to re-release all 5 seasons of The Muppet Show] that’s cute

On Super Bowl Sunday the average American consumes the number of calories Tom Brady eats in 3 years.

I thought the back of the Chiefs quarterback’s jersey said “Madness” and I was very excited for a few seconds. #SuperBowl

This Super Bowl looks like if on the Truman Show, they had a storyline where Jim Carrey won tickets to the big game and this is the tiny football stadium set they built on the island to fool him

That flag has fringe, this Super Bowl is being played under maritime law.

Seven Super Bowl appearances in my fam’. Steve Wallace three times with the Niners. Amani Toomer twice with the Giants. Bobby Hamilton twice with the Patriots. I went to half of one football practice in high school and I was like, “Oh HELL no!” pic.twitter.com/kqYqO5Gdia

Watching the Super Bowl commercials to see who has the worst agent.

The Super Bowl is a competition to see who can wear a mask in the dumbest possible way. pic.twitter.com/s8eJtSod6R

When I’m 43, I hope I’m doing something better than playing in the #SuperBowl. Kinda pathetic.
— Alex Watt (@AlexanderWatt) February 8, 2021
I want to start a harmless disinformation campaign. This year’s Super Bowl was computer generated (like a very sophisticated video game) and the outcome was determined by dueling AI’s. Tom Brady is a clone. Etc

A lot of people don’t know this, but if Tom Brady doesn’t win a Super Bowl every 5 years, he immediately ages into a skeleton like the guy at the end of Indiana Jones

I hope this is the last year we ever have to watch a super bowl without slime cannons

These super bowl commercials proving everyone has been out of work for a year#SuperBowl
— Brooke Van Poppelen (@BVPcomedy) February 8, 2021
I’m not actually watching the Super Bowl so every sponsored tweet appears to be the most upsetting image from a 30 million dollar commercial from another dimension.

Amazing that Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski retired, moved down to Florida, and still managed to win a Super Bowl.

Can’t believe Tom Brady’s son has kissed more 7-time Super Bowl winners than me

Just thought of one for that video of The Weeknd looking confused in the hallway during the Super Bowl thing – “Me on Monday morning before I’ve had my coffee.” Thanks everyone, can’t find the video right now but you know the one I mean
