Seattle Seahawks Touchdown Dance Reminiscent of New Edition, And Twitter Loves It

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson might be among the top MVP candidates this season in the NFL. However, after he launched a pass to David Moore that went for a 75-yard touchdown pass on Monday Night Football to put his team ahead by 10 points, social media didn't sing praises for Wilson, it wowed at the Seahawks end zone dance.

After Moore's touchdown reception put the Seahawks ahead by nine points, and prior to the extra point, he lined up with receivers Tyler Lockett and Jaron Brown for a synchronized boy band dance that had social media buzzing before the fourth quarter quickly crept.

The dance was complete with hip swinging, arm waving and semi-hand jiving. The score put the Seahawks ahead, 27-17, a game they went on to win, 37-30, at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

Though the game had enormous importance in the NFC race for supremacy, the end zone dance had Twitter users talking about football and the musical group New Edition, who performed a similar dance in a video to their song "If It Isn't Love."

The Twitter comments flew in as sharp as a Wilson pass, and they did not disappoint. Here is what social media had to say about the choreographed end zone dance.

"Watch the @Seahawks dance their way 2 the #SUPERBOWL ... Remember this tweet!"

Keisha G wrote, "That's the day Keisha became a #Seahawks ... fan......just a simple dance and I'm hooked and intrigued"

Several NFL fans posted videos similar to this one of New Edition dancing in their video.

Twitter follower Dan said, "My favorite part is Russell Wilson trying to sound cool and celebrate with Moore after this."

Greg Brown said watching NFL players have fun playing a sport is great when he tweeted, "I love players who love the game this much. They're like kids playing football in the street."

Then Yolanda Johnson reminder Twitter who New Edition was when she posted, "Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike."

"If you don't like the dance, then who ... nevermind."

The fun for Seattle extended beyond just an end zone dance as they went from a playoff wild card team to the NFC's No. 2 team behind New Orleans, who has an identical 10-2 record but beat the Seahawks head-to-head.

New Orleans hosts San Francisco, who's also 10-2, this weekend. The separation could help Seattle waltz a little more if the Saints pull out a win.

Seattle finishes with road games at the Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers before two home games against the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers.
