Twitter Thinks Bane Caused the Super Bowl XLVII Blackout

Bane Super Bowl
Warner Bros.

We’re going to pretend all of these people are hilarious and not morons. When the 2013 Super Bowl was delayed by a power outage, most people took it as a chance to actually talk to the people at their football party. These people decided to make jokes on Twitter that the half hour of darkness was actually ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ villain Bane’s fault.

Here’s proof that people have entirely too much time on their hands (you can thank Christopher Nolan later).

(@MoeTrainsTracks): Gotta say, I’m damn impressed by this comeback. All credit goes to Bane and/or Doctor Claw. #2013SuperBowl #SB47



jordan desouza (@djreversejd): Good thing bane didn’t show up during the power outage



jacob spencer (@GingerJakeyBear): Who else thought Bane was gonna show up, as soon as the power went out?



Zach Kohn (@kohnisrad): I’m just going to be a man and admit that I couldn’t think of a Bane joke when the power went out.



Jason Cousins (@I_am_who_knocks): There’s no way that CollegeHumor won’t do a “Bane at the Super Bowl” video now. “What a lovely voice, Beyonce…”



Simon Welch (@Sottle): So from what I’ve gathered from Twitter this “Superbowl” is an event where people watch adverts make Bane jokes and salivate over Beyonce?



Chris Herrera (@ATXBOSS): I really thought Bane was gonna emerge from the tunnel when the power went out! XD



Jake Meyers (@bIgCountry0072): Am I the only one who instantly thought of bane walking out and Randy Moss being the only one who didn’t fall down with the field??



Adam (@FREAKENLOCO): I’m pretty sure Bane was the reason for the power going out.



Kevin Pietrasinski (@KevinPie43): Bane was responsible for the power outage.



February 6 (@Screwstone_): I thought Bane was going to come out when the lights when out just like in the movie



#ItsMySeason2|Apr.13 (@PhazzeMusic): Bane from Batman about to walk out on the stadium.



Connor Drake (@cdrake43): Still pissed the power outage wasn’t bane #whatashame



Richard Lawson (@rilaws): Bane is really gonna ruin the end of this game.



Ketan Khambhayta (@Try2StopMe): I thought Bane was going to come out when the lights went out and shout, “LET THE GAMES BEGIN!”.


(@_Nick626): Stiiiiiiill waiting for the field to cave in and bane announce to the world its coming to an end.
