Detroit Lions Tight End Joseph Fauria just danced his way to a $10K donation to charity! In Sunday’s win versus Washington, the Lions TE caught a 5 yard touchdown pass from Matthew Stafford in start of the second quarter. After he caught the ball, Fauria celebrated by showing us his rendition of N’SYNC’s Bye Bye Bye dance.
While most people were probably like, “Why would he pick that to celebrate with?” Well, the answer is because Jimmy Fallon dared him to. That’s right Late Night host Jimmy Fallon. This stems from a segment Fallon aired on his show earlier this month. Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake performed a skit called “The Evolution of End Zone Dancing.” After the skit aired, Fallon put out a challenge to any NFL Player to perform a move from Timberlake in the end zone and he would donate $10,000 to the players charity.
There does not appear to be another player who answered the challenge, so Fauria will be able to make some charity happy, and it only took a few dance moves.
