SpongeBob went viral thanks to his Super Bowl coverage involving Leonardo DiCaprio.
SpongeBob is the commentator we didn’t know we needed. Last night, the Nickelodeon star made Super Bowl history by covering the game with Patrick Star by his side. The Nickelodeon special went viral time and time again during Super Bowl LVIII, and now one of Leonardo DiCaprio’s character digs is going viral.
As you can see below, the whole thing was filmed live as Super Bowl LVIII continued. During the show, SpongeBob (voiced by Tom Kenny) and Patrick (voiced by Bill Fagerbakke) continued with Nate Burleson, a CBS Sports analyst. Coverage made sure to check out all the celebrities attending the game, including Taylor Swift. But when DiCaprio appeared on screen, SpongeBob made an interesting comment.

“Leonardo DiCaprio, 25 years old,” SpongeBob is heard saying. “It’s his dating history.”
If you’re not sure what the joke is here, well, it’s pretty on point. DiCaprio is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood, but in the recent past, his romantic history has earned him more headlines than ever. In the past, DiCaprio has been seen in public with a number of women under the age of 25. While Gigi Hadid (27) has broken this trend, the actor has been primarily associated with women under 25, including Camila Morrone, Eden. Poland, Juliette Perkins, Kelly Rohrbach and more. When the actor was dating other celebrities like Gisele Bundchen and Blake Lively, the women were no older than 25. Now, fans often joke online that DiCaprio dates exclusively very young women, and SpongeBob is along for the ride.
Of course, this joke was very funny, but it’s certainly strange to hear it come from SpongeBob. It seems the whole joke is out of DiCaprio as he stays busy. The A-list actor is in the midst of awards season given his promotions for Flower Moon Killers. The film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Director for Martin Scorsese.
