LANDOVER, Md. (CBSDC) — Where does a 26-year-old, 333-pound defensive lineman turn for inspiration?
To a corpulent prepubescent budding dance prodigy he saw on YouTube, of course.
After Chris Baker notched the first sack of his NFL career on Sunday against the Chicago Bears, the Washington Redskins nose tackle did a dance that may one-up Barry Cofield’s taser celebration.
And he did so by patterning his moves after a child.
Meet Terio, whose moves have been viewed millions of times online.
“(He’s) a little fat kid that does a dance. He’s got a bunch of videos,” Baker explained.
So what does he have planned for an encore?
Baker says he may do the “Truffle Shuffle” made famous by the “Chunk” character in The Goonies, but nothing is set in stone.
“You might get it,” he said. “I don’t know what I’m going to do next. I gotta go home and practice some things.”
Here’s the world-famous Terio in action.
And in case you haven’t seen it, here is a link to the Truffle Shuffle.
As a point of clarification, Baker did register a sack during a preseason game this August and gave us a preview of the sweet moves then.
