Super Bowl 47 had a very unexpected interception on Sunday when the power shockingly went off.

Half of the New Orleans Superdome was left in the dark when a power surge killed the lights.

The game came to a halt for more than 20 minutes as staffers feverishly worked to get things up and running again.
