There are few greater things than touchdown celebrations and every week of the NFL season we get to see some of the most entertaining dances on the gridiron. This week, just through the afternoon slate of games, we have a clear winner for the best dance.

Who would the honor go to? Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria.

I’m not exactly sure what you would call his dance, but it was hilarious and definitely an eye grabber.

Just check it out for yourself.

Here is a GIF of Fauria’s touchdown celebration, via CJ Fogler on Twitter:

After seeing whatever that dance was — it looked to be a strange mix between Pee Wee Herman and Miley Cyrus — we hope that we get to see Fauria prancing in to the endzone on a week by week basis.

The only thing that could have made his touchdown celebration better would have been if it was a fat guy touchdown dance.

Hopefully he can share his moves with Ndamukong Suh and company so we can see that celebration down the line.
