Katy Perry's halftime show was a impressive production, featuring the singer riding on a giant metal lion, show-stopping cameos from Missy Elliot and more costume changes than we could keep track of. But several of the performance's more memorable moments set off social media fireworks.

The tropical-themed set for Perry's "Teenage Dream/California Girls" medley featured dancers in cartoonish shark and beach ball costumes. The dancers also operated their costumes so their characters could sing along, which weirded out more than a few tweeters.
