This year’s Super Bowl halftime show was pretty epic. And the most epic thing about it, besides the marching bands and oiled warriors and light-up bleachers and gymnastics? Madonna’s giant horned tiara crown thingy, of course! We wondered how this dramatic headgear would look superimposed onto iconic paintings, photographs, and movie scenes, so we took some artistic license and used photoshop to find out.
