Despite the NFL’s increasingly stringent rules regarding touchdown celebrations, Detroit Lions TE Joe Fauria has been able to maintain his unique on-field persona through his end zone dance moves.
After executing a particular homage to N*Sync’s hit single, “Bye, Bye, Bye,” we decided to help show Joe the real moves by having former N*Sync member Lance Bass break down the dance, step by step.
Joe thinks that he’s shooting a fun video on the field where he played his college ball – UCLA’s Rose Bowl Stadium. As you can tell by his reaction in the video below, he has no idea who’s about to pay him a visit…
Special thanks to Lauren Hall at the Rose Bowl for helping facilitate the location logistics.
Edit: After being live for only a few hours, the piece was picked up by various other news outlets, including TMZ, Sports Illustrated, and Joe’s own Detroit Lions!
