Minnesota wideout Justin Jefferson, who has become famous for doing “The Griddy” when celebrating touchdowns, will become the first NFL player to be featured in the popular video game Fortnite.

While Jefferson is not the originator of “The Griddy,” he did popularize the dance at the NFL level and when he was at LSU. Allen Davis created the dance when he was at Landry high school in Louisiana.

People playing Fortnite can buy Jefferson’s bundle, which will give them exclusive cosmetics, a weapon and the ability to do “The Griddy.” You can see an example of how the dance will look in the game below:
