Brown leapt into the air and straddled the goal post in the back of the end zone. Of course, his excessive celebration was immediately flagged by the refs for being "unsportsmanlike conduct."

NBC's announcers, Al Michaels and former NFL star Chris Collinsworth were stunned by Brown's move.

Here's a Vine video showing the leap from a variety of angles.

Within a matter of hours, the event was also given the "Super Mario" treatment.
