NFL player Travis Kelce cops Donkey Kong's Giant Punch
Now dubbed the "Fist of Zeus," Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, admits that he borrowed his famous celebratory move from Donkey Kong.
Following a major touchdown in a game against the Denver Broncos, 25-year-old Kelce imitated Donkey Kong's Giant Punch, a move used by the ape in Super Smash Bros.
In an interview with NFL Total Access, Kelci said the move was inspired by the in-game attack, which is essentially a wind-up punch attack that deals a large amount of damage.
Donkey Kong uses a similar attack at the end of Donkey Kong Country Returns.
Donkey Kong apears in all of the Super Smash Bros. games, and the Giant Punch has remained a staple move for the ape.
I must say that It is nice to know that this football player plays games other than Madden.
What do you think of Kelce's Fist of Zeus? Do you think other NFL players are gamer geeks, too? Let me know in the comments!
