Whether people like it or not, the "fake moon" touchdown celebration by former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss in the 2004 playoffs is something that will forever stand out as one of the most memorable moments in NFL history. Well, apparently, it's a celebration that Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow would also like to re-create if given the chance next season.

During a recent appearance on the "Pardon My Take" podcast, Burrow shared his desire to duplicate Moss's iconic touchdown celebration during the 2024 campaign.

"Remember when Randy Moss fake mooned the crowd?

...If I get a rushing touchdown this year, I might bring back the fake moon. It's gotta be on the road, though.

After declaring that the celebration had to happen on the road, Burrow and the co-hosts of the podcast agreed that the celebration should be done in a road matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers if possible, as they are one of Cincinnati's top rivals.

Could Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow do the Randy Moss TD celebration against the Minnesota Vikings in 2024?

Luckily for the Vikings, they won't potentially be on the receiving end of a Burrow fake moon touchdown celebration next season since the Bengals are not on their 2024 schedule.

So, it won't even have a chance of happening against Minnesota unless the Vikings and Cincinnati meet in the Super Bowl (which would make the celebration even more incredible). But the odds of the Bengals and Vikings meeting in next season's Super Bowl aren't very high, so Minnesota fans shouldn't really have to worry about Burrow using their own franchise's iconic celebration against them.

The Bengals quarterback didn't rush for any touchdowns last season, but he has rushed for a total of 10 scores in his NFL career, including five during the 2022 campaign. So, if he is able to remain healthy for most of the 2024 season, it seems like Burrow could have a good chance to get at least a few opportunities to do his best Randy Moss impression in the end zone.
