In the video, Leo Messi can be seen scoring his second goal of the night and then running towards the sideline where he is mobbed by his Barcelona teammates. He then proceeds to do a little jig in celebration. The celebration was so popular with fans that they started to call it the “Messi dance.”
The celebration was so popular that even other football players started doing it in their own matches. One of the most notable examples of this was Neymar, who scored a goal in a match against Santos and then did the Messi dance in celebration.
