This "Dirty Dancing" Commercial Featuring Odell Beckham, Eli Manning Was Interesting

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham grabs his leg after suffering a season-ending ankle injury during the second half of an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday Oct. 8 2017 in East Rutherford N.J. Beckham is suing a phot

The tag line at the end of the ad: 'To all the touchdowns to come.' The Twittersphere went nuts after the commercial aired, with Eli Manning's name trending on Twitter.

Super Bowl Sunday is all about food, team spirit, and of course football, but when it comes to the masses, most people actually tune in for the commercials. The ad referenced a "remake" of "Crocodile Dundee" with Chris Hemsworth and Danny McBride, the incredible Australian wine, and stunning beaches.

The spot was an ode to touchdown celebrations, which have become increasingly popular among NFL players since the league relaxed rules on them. Manning and Beckham channeled their inner Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey and broke out their best rendition of the famous dance scene from "Dirty Dancing". Manning asks Beckham in the beginning of the ad.

"At first they were counting off the steps in their head and all got it very quickly".

"Eli kinda struggling with the hips", safety Landon Collins said.

The Giants hired general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur, with both having already reached out to Beckham in recent weeks.

One of the best parts may have been that little laugh that Beckham did before the lift, just like Grey did.
