Mayer Hawthorne Campaigns For Thanksgiving Game Performance

    In lieu of Lions fans protesting Chad Kroeger and the boys, falsetto extraordinaire Mayer Hawthorne has officially announced his candidacy to play Detroit’s Thanksgiving Day game’s halftime show. The Ann Arbor, Mich. native caught up with Rolling Stone to record a public service announcement where he effectively put his name on the ballot for the Lions-Packers matchup. The halftime slot is currently filled with Canadian rockers Nickelback, but a petition created to urge the NFL to rescind its decision has garnered more than 43,000 signatures. Watch Hawthorne’s PSA below. [2DBZ]
