Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye was the halftime show for Super Bowl XXIX, held in Miami, Florida on January 29, 1995. It was designed by Disney to promote the March 1995 opening of the Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye theme park attraction at the Disneyland theme park in California. The halftime show, as well as the game, were broadcast on ABC.
The Vince Lombardi Trophy had been stolen and taken into the Temple of the Forbidden Eye, where temple guardian Patti LaBelle sang "Release Yourself". Arriving on the scene via parachute, Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood recaptured the trophy and retreated to a busy nightclub called Club Disneyland where Tony Bennett, jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, and the Miami Sound Machine entertained the patrons.
The club was assaulted by members of the temple and in the ensuing brawl, Jones and Ravenwood got separated with the attackers making off with both Marion and the trophy.
Jones returned to the Temple of the Forbidden Eye, and without looking into the Eye of Mara, saved Marion and reclaimed the Vince Lombardi Trophy, vowing to give it to the winner of the Super Bowl. After Jones recovered the artifact, LaBelle sang "New Attitude". The adventure concluded with Bennett joining LaBelle in singing "Can You Feel The Love Tonight".
Behind the scenesEdit
The 12-minute program included 790 dancers, sky-divers, acrobats, fire-breathers and pyrotechnics. The song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" is from the 1994 Disney animated film The Lion King.
IGN rated Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye as the number one worst Super Bowl Halftime Show ever.
