Sting was announced Thursday as the halftime act for the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 4.

With the game taking place in Toronto, many people thought Drake would be the natural choice, but the NBA did not go in that direction.

To say people, including former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, were baffled by the choice of soft rocker Sting getting the gig would be an understatement.
