The Randy Moss mooning incident in the playoffs following the 2004 season was one of the Hall of Famer’s most memorable moments.

Joe Buck blasted Moss for it on FOX after the act.

Moss was back in the Minneapolis area over the weekend and the story resurfaced as the wide receiver explained the history behind the action with his, um, behind.

Enjoy. Chris Tomasson of Twincities.com gets the primary assist for the transcription.

“The first matchup was in Lambeau, a nice beautiful day, and so when we go in there, the fans, the people tailgating, they’re talking so much crap,’’ said Moss, who had four catches for 70 yards and 2 TDs in the victory. “So, then the band… So, I’m hobbled. So, as I’m standing on the sideline watching my brothers in their warmups, the Wisconsin university band comes down with their horn department. They got it spelled in their horns, ‘Where you at, Moss?’ What? The University of Wisconsin (band)? What? So we get out butts beat.

“That year, the Minnesota Vikings fans, the loyals, wasn’t really feeling us,’’ Moss said. “So, they sold a lot of their tickets to the Green Bay Packer fans. So, inside the Metrodome, all we heard was, ‘Go Pack go.’

“It’s probably about 10 white (butts) sitting over there over the hill,’’ he said about some Packers fans. “They got all their pants down and stuff, a white moon just all lined up. So, we’re on the bus, we’re talking about, ‘Oh, my God.’ We’re sitting there laughing.’’

And then the moment to get even occurs with the game-breaking TD.

“I need this moment.’’ Moss said. “So I still haven’t forgotten, ‘Where you at, Moss? … My mindset was, like, dude, I’m not going to pull my pants down, I’m just going to fake moon them. … When our busses came in, they would egg us or moon us, and that day we came it was 10 butts right there lined up, all of them was white. Naked, too, baby. So I said, “I got something for you all.’ … It felt good.’’
