World Cup SuperStar Celebrates Goal With Fortnite Dance (VIDEO)
Anyone who has been paying attention to the World Cup might have seen a few familiar celebratory dances featured throughout matches. After all, what better way to celebrate goal in the world’s most popular sport than with a dance from one of the most recognizable video games? That’s right, Fortnite has even infiltrated the World Cup.
During the World Cup Final between France and Croatia, French footballer Antoine Griezmann lined up for a penalty shot. After making it look easy by scoring a goal, he runs off to the side and throws down a bit of shade that Fortnite players know all too well. Check it out for yourself below:

As can be seen in the video above, Griezmann recreated the “Take the L” dance from the popular Battle Royale title. There is no doubt that it shall be known as the taunt seen around the world. It already feels bad when someone hits you with a pump shotgun and throws down a dance as you watch from the afterlife, but having it tossed your way during the World Cup Final… that’s got to sting.
