NFL Stars Celebrate with Hip Hop Dance Experience for Charity


If you’re watching football today as most people do every Sunday afternoon, keep an eye out for three players: Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller, Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, and San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree. These three players have partnered with Ubisoft to create new signature celebrations inspired by The Hip Hop Dance Experience.

Whenever these players perform their celebratory sack/touchdown dances on the field, Ubisoft will make a donation to their respective charities. Von Miller is sack-dancing for Von’s Vision, a foundation dedicated to providing eye care, glasses, and contact lenses to underprivileged youth. “Shady” McCoy’s TD dances will each bank some cash for the LeSean McCoy Foundation, which is dedicated to assisting people in at-risk communities of Pennsylvania and raising funds for ALS (Lou Gehrig Disease) research. Finally, donations for Crabtree’s celebrations will be made to the Boys & Girls Club.

I’m kind of an old fuddy-duddy when it comes to the excessive dancing and celebrating that goes on after every single play in the NFL these days–great, dude, you got a first down, stop acting like you won the game and get back to the damn huddle!–but if these guys want to strut their stuff for a good cause, who am I to complain?

The Hip Hop Dance Experience is scheduled to launch for Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 Kinect this Tuesday, November 13. Check the videos below for a behind the scenes look at each player’s new charitable dance moves. Also stay tuned for our upcoming 2012 dance-off guide, where Aaron will be taking a look at the latest dancing video games to groove to for the holidays.
