As if the reviews of Maroon 5’s Super Bowl 53 halftime show weren’t bad enough, now social media is mocking the silky tank top sported by frontman Adam Levine.
Before stripping down to show off his tattoo collection at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Levine launched the band’s lackluster set in a black jacket with a red racer stripe down the front.
Underneath: a cubist chemise of sorts, featuring multiple shades of the color brown.
Viewers promptly went wild with fashion critiques upon its reveal, with several twit wits even posting side-by-side photo comparisons declaring Levine’s dirt-toned shirt a throwback to drab ’70s decor.
Morgan Jordal kicked off the Twitter trash talk when she posted an image of a child holding a retro cushion up to their TV screen as Levine did his thing.
The tweet has since racked up 27,000 likes and spawned a host of armchair quarterbacks comparing his top to retro pillows, curtains, rugs and, yes, armchairs.
Many Super Bowl watchers, however, were more unimpressed by what Levine wasn’t wearing — with some declaring the shirtless last quarter of his halftime performance the sweaty second coming of “Nipplegate.”
“IF TWO ADAM LEVINE NIPPLES WERE APPROVED THEN SOMEONE OWES JANET JACKSON A BIG APOLOGY,” viewer Kate Zack rage-tweeted.
