The Indianapolis Colts may have lost their SNF match up against the New England Patriots by a considerable margin in the end, going down 42-20 in front of their home crowd.
But at least the Lucas Oil Stadium crowd were treated to perhaps the greatest touchdown celebration ever to grace the NFL with a very unlikely source coming up with the goods.
With Andrew Luck and the Colts searching for a way back into the game, and their usual targets such as T.Y. Hilton and Reggie Wayne unable to produce on the night, it was left to left tackle Anthony Castonzo to grab a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter - and boy did he make the most of his first, and most likely last, trip into the end zone.
After taking a short goal-line pass from Luck, Castonzo wasted little time in busting out some clearly well-rehearsed dance moves that have taken the internet by storm.
Outstanding work I am sure you will agree.
While to the untrained eye the former first round draft pick's crazy touchdown moves may have seemed nothing more than a slightly odd crab impersonation, there was, it seems. a method to his madness.

The Colts big man's big moves were apparently in homage to Dhalsim, a character in the video game series Street Fighter. In fairness to Castonzo he had them pretty nailed down, if he had painted himself orange and lost a couple of pounds it would have been tough to tell the difference.
Castonzo's TD grab was, unsurprisingly, his first ever in the NFL and comes after 54 appearances so kudos to him for having a celebration of such high calibre prepared. There have been some players more accustomed to reaching the end zone that have offered up some moves of their own this season however.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Josh Brown for instance went for the more energetic, out of control approach when running in his maiden NFL touchdown this season.
It hasn't all been good news in the celebrations department in 2014 however with New Orleans Saints star tight end Jimmy Graham having recently vowed to quit leaping into the stands after being groped during a recent Superdome match up.
