Missy Elliott's Super Bowl halftime show was amazing, introduced by Katy Perry riding a large polygonal tiger. For the final song, which went back to Perry for "Firework," the songstress had to make extra sure she didn't drop the mic as she was floated over the field — and apparently that means using a Wii remote strap, i.e. that safety precaution Nintendo gave you to avoid throwing your controller into a TV while playing virtual tennis or whatever.
At least, it looks like a Wii remote strap, and I'm not the only one who thought so. Cue the tweetstorm:
