In the World Cup final between France and Croatia, player Antoine Griezmann celebrated in the rudest way possible: with an emote dance from Fortnite.

“Take the L” is an emote in Fortnite that truly, brutally taunts other players. As you can see in the video below, the character puts their hand up to their face in an “L” shape and then begins to kick their feet back and forth. Take the loss, it seems to scream, because I am totally making fun of you right now.

I never would have thought that I would see that after a goal in a World Cup final, but here we are. The celebration was incurred after a penalty kick against Croatia, and it has to be said that Griezmann has the emote down pretty well.

And, of course, the gif:


Of course, that could be because he’s had some practice. He did it against Argentina earlier in the tournament:

Maybe touchdown dances will return with a strong Fortnite flavor. Could we catch someone sliding into home base doing the floss dance?

I've played all of the Baldur's Gate games.

I think it’s great! I’m glad the refs didn’t take issue with a young All-Star getting his game on and get him fed to the rules when he hit the ground running. Yes, he’s looking kinda dumb with his finger and his thumb in the shape of an L on his forehead. But the years start coming and they don’t stop coming, so it doesn’t make sense not to live for fun.
