Antoine Griezmann did the L Dance after scoring a goal against Croatia
Fortnite is a game of such magnitude, that it has become a part of mainstream pop culture. From mainstream memes to renowned artists like Marshmello participating in Fortnite tournaments, the game has become enormous. And yesterday it received the probably the biggest stage in the world, when Antoine Griezmann did the L Dance from Fortnite.
L Dance is when you put your thumb and finger the shape of an L on your forehead and then kick both your feet on either side, in a brutal display intended to humiliate. The dance is usually used to mock other players in Fortnite.
Griezmann performed the dance in front of the crowd after scoring the second goal against Croatia, giving France a 2-1 lead. He has had some practice before too; he performed the same L Dance after scoring a goal against Argentina in the FIFA World Cup.
Calm, cool and collected from Griezmann! 😎
