Just when you thought Beyonce had the title of ‘Best Half-time Show’ all sewn up for eternity, Lady Gaga practically bungee-jumps into the stadium to kick off her 2017 performance.

The audience at home and in the stadium gasped as she leapt off the roof after a stirringly patriotic rendition of This Land is Your Land.
As soon as I saw Lady Gaga jump off that thing, I knew it would become a legendary gif— jo (@jocannady) February 6, 2017

… to what animal she looked like, it wasn’t long before Twitter went into overdrive.
When I first saw lady gaga jump in the air, my first thought was flying squirrel. Obviously I'm not the only one https://t.co/EB6ZLAhFTF 😄😅— Emily Cervantes (@EmAllred) February 6, 2017
The songstress, who was dressed in a metallic leotard emblazoned with sequins and wearing knee length boots, also delighted celebrity fans with her leap from above.

Meanwhile it reminded some viewers of SpongeBob SquarePants.
Others thought of The Simpsons …
Even Kermit got a mention
We’d advise not to try her moves at home, but it looks like it’s too late for some.
Mom: So if @ladygaga jump off a cliff are you going to jump, too?
Me: HEREEEE WE GOOOhttps://t.co/k4hTK6fNd0— xoxo, Anthony ⭐️☁️ (@BeebeAnthony) February 6, 2017
This performance was unforgettable; no wonder it spawned a meme-fest. Lady Gaga out.
Oh also …
