Watch: Kirk Cousins' new ad for Skittles is ... something

The Vikings QB recreated his touchdown dance.

So, we're really not sure what to say about this.

Celebrating the fact his team is entering a bye week fresh off a 24-9 win over the Detroit Lions, Kirk Cousins has posted a short Twitter video ad for Skittles.

It's ... well it's something, as Cousins recreates the bizarre, arm-waving touchdown dance he displayed after running in for 6 against the Arizona Cardinals last month.

Against the backdrop of four wacky waving inflatable tube men, Cousins places down a (rather large) box of Skittles and then dances away.

Below is the moment Cousins introduce his arm-flailing celebration, which sparked a dance craze that has been replicated in zero cities anywhere.

Still, the Vikings are 5-3-1 and Cousins has for the most part looked like a good investment at least as a quarterback, if not a dancer.
