H'm. I kinda dig it. You have to get past the crass commercialization (beat that down hard), but then it's celebration for a mass audience. After nearly two years, I'm touched to see it. Any and all--it works for me.
And the MUSIC continues...forever...

At first I thought it was ok, very cheesy but if it gets people singing the song and then going and picking up the Prince original then that’s cool.

But then it got to the part in the mortuary with the tag on the toe and them singing “Maybe it’s cos we’re all gonna die”. I stopped watching it right there. I know it sounds silly but it just seemed a bit disrespectful singing that Prince song to a body on the slab given what happened.

I love seeing people honor Prince and his music. This is good.

Not as good as what he can do, but I can accept it for what it is.

That was cool and fun. Be glad that the song was used and the man remembered. Would also assume that the estate gets something for licensing the song? So, all good here.

First, Prince would choke the shit outta all these people. Second, he'd cash his unbelievably large payment, and, then, he'd choke their asses again. I guess Old Friends really are for sale.

I thought it was cute AND anyone who didn't watch to the very end missed the tribute.
It's like some here want him to be forgotten and shoved in a corner.
.
It also tells us there will be a lot of Prince on TV, Sunday.

Anything like this that gets people focused on Prince is good in my book. Maybe eventually more people will focus on his message.

I won't mention any names but someone on FB who has been involved with set up and rehearsals all week said to be sure to catch the half-time show. And to be sure to record it because we'll want to see it more than once nod biggrin and said we won't be sorry we did. Now I'm no football fan but I will be recording the whole thing to ensure I don't miss whatever is coming.

I agree. Anything that brings some purple to the masses is OK with me.

Anything positive that gets Prince 'trending' is fine by me. Sure, it was kind of cheesy, but our little purple guy ain't forgotten by the masses! Long live Prince!!!!!!!!!

It’s harmless fun. If we want Prince to remain part of pop cukture, it’s going to require some elements like this.

I think it's cute. A little cringe, but cute. I also like that it's bringing attention to our guy whom we miss like hell.
