Hannover 96 forward Jimmy Briand is so obsessed with FIFA 15 that he celebrated his first ever Bundesliga goal by performing the 'Dead Fish' celebration during his side's 2-0 victory over Hertha Berlin on Friday.
The 29-year-old - who joined the German club from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon during the summer - was so overwhelmed after registering his first strike at the Olympiastadion, that he delivered his own take of the now infamous routine in front of a bemused set of supporters.
Speaking after the game the Frenchman explained that the celebration had been premeditated, following a promise made to a friend that he regularly enjoys playing the EA Sports FIFA 15 game with.
"I'm very happy because it was an important goal just before half time," he was quoted saying by Bundesliga.com. "After that we controlled the game and we were able to get the win, which was the most important thing.
"My celebration was from playing FIFA. I was playing with my friend Salif Sane and I said if I scored, I'd celebrate like that."

Briand's celebration is the latest example of a growing number of pre-planned routines that have taken the internet by storm after going viral on social media in recent months.
Back in October, RB Leipzig striker Daniel Frahn mimicked WWE wrestler Randy Orton's signature 'RKO' move to commemorate a goal he scored in a Bundesliga 2 game against VfL Bochum at the Red Bull Arena, which suggests that Germany is currently a hotbed for entertaining celebrations.

After setting Tayfun Korkut's side on their way to a valuable three points in Berlin, Briand's goal was followed up by a second half strike from Japanese star Hiroshi Kiyotake, who wrapped up the win with a well-taken finish.
