Joseph Fauria's touchdown dance inspired by Justin Timberlake, honored by Jimmy Fallon (with videos)



Quote:
Fauria’s dance went viral almost immediately after he scored on a 5-yard pass from Matthew Stafford in Sunday’s first half.

Fauria said Tuesday several fans forwarded him a YouTube clip of Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon doing mock touchdown dances as a shot at the NFL cracking down on end zone celebrations.

Fallon said if any player did one of his and Timberlake’s dances, he would match whatever fine they receive from the NFL and donate the money to charity.

Fauria was not fined for his celebration. NFL rules prohibit choreographed dances by two or more players; Fauria celebrated alone, but Fallon said on his show Tuesday that he saw Fauria’s dance and would donate $10,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan.

Check it out around the 11-minute mark: (video in link)


Pretty cool. What do you guys think?

It's easy to see why Fauria is becoming a fan favorite. Production + great personality is a winning formula.

The kid has great hands and is playing 100% the opposite of how Pettigrew plays: relaxed.

Let Pettigrew serve in the H-Back until his contract is up, but lets see this kid more often between the 20's.

He really seems like he loves to play the game. I hope he can become a full-time player.

As an aside, I love me some white man touch down dances.

I really hope Fauria makes it long term in the NFL. The sport needs more people like this.
