Chelsea star Christian Pulisic is one of the biggest names to do the Griddy celebration in football. He used it as a celebration in a Champions League match against Lille in February.

Pulisic scored the Blues’ second goal of the game in a 2-0 victory against Lille at Stamford Bridge and attempted the popular dance celebration.

The USMNT official Twitter account subsequently tweeted, “Hit the Griddy, CP”, to which the official Chelsea Twitter account replied, “Not sure what this is, but we’re here for it.”

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher danced as a part of CBS Sports ‘Champions League coverage with the help of former England star Alex Scott.

  • Swing the arms back and forth
  • ‘Throw your Bs’ (make glasses)
  • Speed it up

The dance involved tapping the ground with the back of your heels while simultaneously swinging your arms back and forth the next step is to make a pair of glasses with your hands up to your face, also referred to as ‘Throw your Bs’.
