'Pants on the Ground': Favre playoff edition

After beating the Dallas Cowboys, 34-3, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre did a locker-room rendition of the now-famous Internet song 'Pants on the Ground,' Favre style.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Farve strayed from his classic two-hands-in-the-air celebration Sunday to a new routine: the Internet sensation "Pants on the Ground." Favre treated teammates and reporters to a rousing rendition of the song after he led the Norsemen to a Texas-sized stomping of the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC divisional playoffs.

After the 34-3 rampage, the much-pilloried Minnesota quarterback – persona non grata in the neighboring state of Wisconsin – is now one step from the Super Bowl. And in the locker room after the game, he was feeling it.

It may not be quite as impressive – or spastic – as the famous Riverdance jig that Boston Red Sox reliever Jonathan Papelbon performed at Fenway Park when the Sox clinched the American League East title in 2007. But it's certainly making the rounds online.

Apparently, Favre told rookie receiver Percy Harvin that he'd do the song and dance if the Vikings won. And, as we all know, once Favre says something, he sticks to it.
