Just call it the keg stand heard ‘round the world.

Indianapolis Colts offensive lineman Quenton Nelson may have had the touchdown celebration of the year, unfortunately it did not count.

The Colts lined up the second-year guard as a fullback on a third-and-short play from the goal line and quarterback Jacoby Brissett handed the ball to Nelson. He appeared to have broken the plane and was rewarded a touchdown on the field.

Next came the best part.

Nelson had his teammates lift up his legs while he put his hands on another lineman’s back and imitated a keg stand as part of his celebration and instantly became a viral hit.

The only thing is the touchdown did not count.

The call on the field was automatically reviewed and overturned, ruling that Nelson never broke the plane.

The Colts went for it on fourth down on the very next play, but this time Brissett found Marcus Johnson in the end zone to give the Colts a 17-7 lead over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

While Nelson’s touchdown did not count, the keg stand will live on forever as social media fawned over the celebration.

Perhaps Nelson will get a chance to do it again in the future and make it count.
