A certain funk emanated from the field at State Farm Stadium for Super Bowl 57 on Sunday. The source?
Travis Kelce's touchdown celebration, of course. The Chiefs tight end broke out a viral dance move following an 18-yard touchdown reception from Patrick Mahomes to tie the game 7-7 at the 6:57 mark in the first quarter.
What was it? The Stanky Leg, of course:
Kelce's choice in dance move — and the, ahem, effectiveness with which he pulled off the move — naturally created a stir on social media. Here's a sampling of some of the better responses:
