I think I’ve found my favorite NFL player. Travis Kelce, who is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, has a Nintendo-inspired touchdown celebration based on one of Donkey Kong‘s signature moves in Super Smash Bros. That’s right – Donkey Kong and his Giant Punch special ability, which sees him twirling his arm repeatedly until he gains enough power to unleash a massive, devastating blow. See Kelce’s unique celebration for yourself in the video above.
“I got the actual move from Super Mario Smash Brothers,” Kelce said on NFL Network. “I mean, Donkey Kong was the original, what they called the ‘Fist of Zeus.’ He had the original Fist of Zeus on Smash Bros.”
