Most New Yorkers will remember this years Super Bowl for the Giants victory over the Patriots. Come to think of it, no one is really going to try to forget about the GMen win, except maybe the folks up in Boston. But for those who watched this game just for the festivities or because of some weird obsession with Madonna, there was a little extra twist to the halftime show.

Towards the end of the performance, the words “World Peace” were shined upon the super bowl stage. Most people didn’t really get the message quite right. Twitter blew up with people saying it was a shout out to St. John’s alum Ron Artest. The Lakers star has recently changed his name to Metta World Peace. As the tweets began trending, Artest himself reacted to the moment tweeting “Rotfl!! Lmao!!! Super Bowl World Peace!!!!!” followed by “I feel like kissing Madonna Lol.”
