Ingram dances

The Saints' Mark Ingram does his version of a dance called "flossing" after scoring Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017, against Washington at the New Orleans Superdome.

The kids call it "flossing," or sometimes "The Russell."

That's the inspiration behind the dance Saints running back Mark Ingram did after his first-quarter touchdown against the Washington Redskins.

The dance was Ingram's version of the move made famous by Russell Horning, a teen dancer who has worked with Katy Perry.

Ingram said this week that there's really no rhyme or reason to how he celebrates. Sometimes he dances. Sometimes he leaps into the stands, which has been called the Fleur-de-Leap.

"I like dancing, but I like jumping in the crowd and hanging out too," Ingram said. "It's just spur of the moment, however you feel at the moment I guess. I'm just having fun out there. We are having fun and just having a good time."
