Eli Manning trying to salsa dance is beyond hilarious to watch (video)


New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning joined his teammate Victor Cruz at a recent event and made an attempt at salsa dancing.

The 2015 season didn’t go the way the New York Giants had planned, as the team finished 6-10 on the year and lost six of their final seven games, including the final three of the season. On offense, quarterback Eli Manning still had a good season statistically, but was without his familiar target in wide receiver Victor Cruz.

For three seasons from 2011 to 2013, the duo was one of the best in the game and helped lead the Giants to a Super Bowl championship before Cruz went down with a season ending injury in 2014 and was out for the entire 2015 campaign.

Even though he hasn’t played in over a year and a half, the New Jersey native Cruz is still one of the most popular players on the team with the fanbase … in part due to his traditional salsa dancing he does after scoring a touchdown. During a recent event, Manning joined Cruz and made an attempt at showing he could dance:

The key word in that previous sentence was “attempt,” as Manning looks like a dancing mixture of Carlton Banks from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and his brother, Peyton. Let’s hope things look better on the field this season for the Giants, who could be back in the playoff hunt if Cruz can stay healthy and become a compliment player to star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
