Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria does 'NSync 'Bye, Bye, Bye' dance after scoring touchdown (GIF)


When Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria isn’t catching touchdown passes, he’s coming up with creative dances that he can bust out when he does catch those touchdown passes.

Fauria, who hauled in a score during Week One set the internet ablaze with his uh, ‘skills’ and today was no different.

After catching a first quarter touchdown in traffic, Fauria busted out another unique celebration which at first you probably overlooked. It looked like random dancing at first, but stop for a second a look again – especially you folks who were teenagers in the early to mid 2000′s.

Notice anything special about Fauria’s dance? Seem to replicate anything you’ve seen before? Maybe a bit of Justin Timberlake nostalgia is kicking in? Yes, the undrafted UCLA product just busted out the famed ‘Bye, Bye, Bye’ dance from boy band ‘NSync, which of course featured the pop icon.

Another week – another dance battle victory.

If he’s busting out these dances in the early weeks of the season, should be interesting to see what he comes up with by season end. I’m hoping for some MC Hammer.
