Sofi Tukker is one half Sophie Hawley-Weld and one half Tucker Halpern. Originally from Brookline, Halpern is a self-described Patriots fan and was beside himself when Hawley-Weld chose to watch Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s hit musical instead of the big game.
“I wasn’t even there,” she said about skipping out on Tucker’s viewing party.
“She went to La La Land during the Super Bowl. Which is offensive.”
“Tucker was really offended,” she added.
“I was so mad. I was like, ‘I need to find a new bandmate,'” he replied coldly.
Halpern went on to share his thoughts on NFL superstitions with Gregg & Freddy. “I watched the second half in a different place, and I couldn’t move! Once they started making the comeback, I was like, ‘Okay, can’t go back to where I was sitting the first half.’ And it would have been my fault [if they lost]. So I had to watch the entire game from the floor.”
“That is ridiculous,” Hawley-Weld chirped.
