Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show Drinking Game: Coldplay Edition

Super Bowl 50 is a big deal for so many reasons--including this year’s halftime show. Apparently, we should expect Coldplay, Beyoncé, AND Bruno Mars! It’s going to be a night of epic proportions!

Beyoncé and Bruno have graced this stage before, but it’s Coldplay’s first time (and they have a LOT to live up to); based on the epic stages they’ve already played (Glastonbury can’t be that different from the Super Bowl, right?), we know they’re up for the challenge. We’re positive that this year, we’ll end up with a bunch of amazing, wild, memorable moments.

So watch with us (and the other 100 million people that’ll be tuning in) and let loose with yet another annual Super Bowl halftime drinking game. Grab some moonshine while you cruise through a sky full of stars--but don’t get too drunk in love! Remember to drink responsibly!*

*PS: Forgive me for the wordplay, I couldn’t help it!

Take Two Drinks When:

Chris Martin starts to jump with his hands in the air

There’s a zoom in on a guitar solo

There’s a cut to an audience member with his or her eyes closed


Chug for Five Seconds When:

Beyoncé and Chris Martin dramatically break into their new single, Hymn for the Weekend

Beyoncé flips her hair and rocks out during a lengthy instrumental

Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, and Chris Martin do an epic mashup

Any of the singers perform a jazzed-up version of one of their songs using Bruno’s brass band


Finish your Drink When:
