Watch: Michael Thomas Recreates Iconic 'Mobile Phone' Touchdown Celebration

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas completed a 72-yard touchdown during his side's 45-35 victory over the LA Rams last night, but it is his celebration that has everyone talking.

With the Saints up by three points late in the fourth quarter, Thomas burned past Marcus Peters to race down the left touchline and in for a touchdown.

After entering the end zone, Thomas then raced over a goal post and pulled out a mobile phone.

The celebration was a recreation of Joe Horn's renowned effort against the Giants.

 

Thomas went on to reveal he had phones at both goalposts, planning for all possibilities. He said, "I watched the YouTube video before the game."
