Mayer Hawthorne performs an alternative half-time show for Thanksgiving [Video]

The funky dude that is Mayer Hawthorne took it upon himself to provide an alternative to the half time show on Thanksgiving in America. The actual halftime show in the NFL game between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers was performed by Nickelback, but Hawthorne gave our American friends a little something different from his folks’ house in Michigan; featuring his Dad on the bass guitar.

He said: “I’m gonna play a short medley of favorites and some songs especially for Detroit,” says Hawthorne. “The band will be all local musicians from Detroit. We’ll be watching the game upstairs!” Check out the soulful performance below.
