Lions Joseph Fauria touchdown end zone dance gif
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Dancing!
Nsync approves of Joseph Fauria's "BYE BYE BYE" touchdown dance:
Why in the name of Justin Timberlake did Fauria do an *NSYNC dance in the end zone?
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has a theory on that one, "I think it had something to do with some late-night show. I think it was [Jimmy] Fallon," Stafford said, via MLive.com. "He and [Justin] Timberlake did a deal, 'The Evolution of the Touchdown Dance.' They said that if anybody copied their move and put it in the end zone, they'd put him on the show. So I think he was going for that."
It seems Stafford and Fauria both know their late night stuff. Fallon and Timberlake did do a skit called 'The Evolution of the Touchdown Dance.' The skit ran on Sept.10 and not only did Fallon offer to put an NFL player on the show if they did one of his dances, but he offered to pay their fines.
Jimmy Fallon on the evolution of end zone dancing:
Fauria says he has some more end zone dances up his sleeve. If Fauria's going to use one of the dances from Fallon's show, that could mean we see the 'I thought I just saw Aaron Hernandez' dance or the 'Manti Te'o on a date' dance. Both of those were featured on Fallon's Sept. 10 show, which you can see here.
