The Most Over-the-Top Hilarious Touchdown Celebrations of All Time

List RulesVote up the NFL end zone celebrations that went too far but did so with enough style and exuberance to make the game more entertaining.

If you’re reading this, you probably don’t remember a time in the NFL before end zone celebrations (and if you do, then take a nap, Grandpa). End zone celebrations became a thing in the late '80s with ball-spiking and slowly ramped up into incredibly elaborate performances based around players machine-gunning each other or trying to topple a field goal post with their masculinity and touchdown prowess.

The NFL finally started handing out fines for excessive celebrations, but that hasn’t stopped players from getting H.A.M. after an especially good play. For some players, the $10,000 fine (!) is totally worth twerking in the end zone, or taking a phone call after scoring six quick points, but you know there’s at least one player on this list who’s regretting their celebration now that they want to buy a new jet ski.

It’s ridiculous to tell an adult football player that he’s being over the top after scoring a touchdown. When your adrenaline is through the roof, and you’ve just caught a 47-yard pass or barreled through a defensive line to turn your enemies into dust, you have to let off steam somehow, or else the one thing you love will quickly become a joyless slog like the rest of your life. These touchdown celebrations may be over the top, but most of them were well-earned.

    Once again we join an Antonio Brown touchdown already in progress. This time, in a game against the Indianapolis Colts, Brown celebrates by jumping junk first into the goal post. Didn't he see Concussion

    Ezekiel Elliot Donates Himself to the Salvation Army

    So first of all, this is amazing. Of course Ezekiel Elliot jumped into a giant Salvation Army bucket after scoring a touchdown in a Sunday night game against Tampa Bay. Why put the bucket there if you don't want someone to jump into it? The great thing about this story is that the Salvation Army reported that by Tuesday they had received $850,000 in donations.

    Skeletor impersonator and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones called in from his lair inside a volcano to say, "We have those kettles there because we do want the visibility of reminding everybody, certainly at this time of year, how doing the most good is putting a dollar in that red kettle. To have gotten that attention in front of probably 20 million or so people last night for the Salvation Army was just wonderful."

    What's the deal with Randy Moss? In 2005, he and his Vikings were playing against the Packers at Lambeau Field when Moss mooned the Packers fans after a TD. Joe Buck called him "disgusting" and he received a $10,000 fine. That's one expensive eclipse.
