Antonio Brown celebration made into hilarious Super Mario themed video

The Pittsburgh Steelers ran riot in a 45-10 win against the Indianapolis Colts, with wide receiver Antonio Brown pulling out a brilliant performance of eight catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns.

However, it was a play on special teams, not on offense, that was the highlight of his evening.

With 4:01 left on the clock during the fourth quarter, Brown had a 71-yard punt return for a touchdown, his third touchdown of the day and he became the seventh player since the AFL-NFL merger to have two receiving touchdowns and a punt return for a score in a single game.

While that is a nice record itself, he will instead be remembered for his celebration after the score. After the touchdown, Brown decided to run for the goalpost to try and stick to it, grasping it with only one hand as he had the football in the other.

Expectedly, he fell flat on his back moments later, but with a smile on his face. He was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for, as the official said on that evening, 'using the goalpost as a prop'. Since then, it has been turned into its own Super Mario themed video.

His celebration may have made you gasp, but it isn't the most outrageous thing he's done in the past year.

Do you remember his 'kick' on Cleveland Browns' punter Spencer Lanning over a year ago?

During a punt return against the Browns, the wide receiver ran the ball to the opposition's 25-yard line from his own 27. However, at the Browns' 35-yard line, unfortunate timing led to Brown kicking the punter square in the face.

Everyone smiled and laughed at the accident afterwards, including Lanning. Brown was issued a fine, like he probably will be for his goalpost celebration last night too, but it's just another example of wherever he goes, hilarity follows.
