Watch what happens when Detroit Lions and N'Sync collide

Detroit Lions Tight-end Joe Fauria has become known not so much for touchdowns, but for his exuberant celebrations.

He often mimics dance moves performed by pop group N'sync who were pretty big back in the '90's.

So then when he was asked by Fox sports to teach one of their presenters some of his moves, no doubt he thought it was just going to be a somewhat trivial piece.

What happened next, was fairly unexpected.

After a few seconds of somewhat awkwardly trying out some of his moves came the big surprise of the whole day.

Lance Bass, the former N'sync star showed up with a bullhorn and came down the stands to announce his arrival.

He did have a point that for the upcoming season, Lions fans may be wanting to see some new moves from the Lions Tight-end.

So when Bass tried to teach him legendary N'sync moves, lets just say he didn't pick them up that quickly.

He may have some more work to do before he can be the next member of the now disbanded group.

Looking to the future

Fauria may have made a fairly big reputation for himself with his very entertaining endzone dances, lets take a look at some of his best.

My personal favourite has to be the Saturday night fever dance which has probably never been seen on an NFL field ever.

As enjoyable as the rest of the NFL fans may find the encounter with Bass and Fauria's dances in general, the Lions fans may have to ask some questions.

Its likely to be his last dance training session until next summer with all the NFL teams beginning their training camps soon.

Having just completed his rookie season with the Lions, fans in Detroit will be hoping that Fauria can improve on last year which saw him record seven touchdowns in 16 games.

Yet to establish himself as a starter, Fauria only started two games for the Lions last year who went 7-9 last season.

The Lions fans will be hoping that Fauria has his mind completely set on the football and not on the dancing when the season kicks off.
