Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria needed a solid dance for his second epic touchdown, so he spiked the ball and did the N’Sync “Bye Bye Bye” dance after catching a pass from Matt Stafford in the back of the end zone for a solid touchdown.
The guy is absolutely hysterical and his touchdown celebrations are becoming something to watch.
When the rookie tight end scored a touchdown in his NFL debut, he celebrated with a dance move that looked like something he cribbed from a Miley Cyrus video. For his second career touchdown, scored Sunday in Detroit’s game against the Washington Redskins, the youngster from UCLA took it back to those halcyon days of boy bands, CDs and when love between two former Mickey Mouse Club members turned pop stars seemed like it’d be everlasting.
That’s ‘N Sync’s Bye, Bye, Bye dance, in case you want to act like you didn’t know.
What will Fauria do on his next touchdown? Given the location of his team, maybe a Motown-inspired touchdown dance? Will he break out a One Direction move? Or would he go the obvious route and twerk (but hopefully not in a game called by Joe Buck)? Either way, it’s good for Fauria that he was in the center of the the Bye, Bye, Bye circle.
He seems to be the NFL player to watch each week.
