Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith sang praises of this year's Super Bowl headliner Bruno Mars, calling him first and foremost a good person and a fine entertainer.
Admitting he wasn't aware that Mars is such a big RHCP fan, Chad told Fuse: "Nice man, good entertainer, smart, handsome..."
Asked whether the band "was in" on the big gig as soon as they got the call, Smith replied: "No, not at first. We were like, to be completely honest, we were like, 'How's this gonna work?' We kinda needed to know how we were being incorporated into his thing and he was very generous and open to suggestions and ideas."
"Great hair," the drummer got back to praises. "Good teeth."
Meanwhile, Billboard report confirmed that the halftime show had more viewers tuning in than the Super Bowl itself.
The 115.3 million viewers figure is also an all-time record when it comes to Super Bowl history, topping Madonna's 114 million mark set two years ago. The game itself attracted 98.88 million viewers this year, make sure to check out the halftime show footage below.
