Remember that petition to play the “Sweet Victory” clip from the Spongebob Squarepants episode “Band Geeks” during Super Bowl LIII? It’s still up on, and it’s still getting tons of signatures.

When we first reported on this petition, meant to honor creator Stephen Hillenburg’s death, the signature count was just over 651,000, and rising rapidly. At the time of this writing, there are over 1,043,500 signatures.

The episode is a favorite among fans and critics, as well as members of the cast and crew. It consists of Squidward trying to live out his dreams of conducting a band for the Bubble Bowl, a Superbowl-style event. At first things go as badly as you might expect–but Spongebob and friends pull through big time for Squidward in the end.

If that’s still not ringing any bells, you can watch the “Sweet Victory” clip below:
