Don't blame Dani Alves and Thiago. Who hasn't spontaneously broken into a rendition of "Tchu Tcha Tcha" every now and then?
If you watched Barcelona's 7-0 deconstruction of Rayo Vallecano in La Liga on Sunday, you probably saw Thiago and Dani Alves bust a few dance moves after Thiago scored a goal in the 77th minute.
Their moves appear in the video above, and they're… well, something.
Barcelona, as you'll recall, recently lost La Liga to Real Madrid, crashed out of the Champions League and had their coach announce that he was leaving them. All in a few days' time.
So it wasn't surprising, or noteworthy really, that Thiago and Dani Alves would celebrate a goal so enthusiastically.
But here's the thing. That goal didn't win the game for Barcelona. It didn't come at a vital point in the match. It wasn't even Barcelona's first goal. Or their second, third or fourth.
Yes, it was Barcelona's fifth goal. And, yes, that's definitely something worth celebrating with interpretive dance.
As Dirty Tackle points out, Thiago and Alves' choice in dance numbers was strongly reminiscent of the "Tchu Tcha Tcha" routine.
Well played, boys. Really, that was very nicely done.
Anyway, Barca captain Carles Puyol was none too impressed. And for good reason—the Rayo fans were booing and hissing his teammates' bad sportsmanship.
So the Permed One ran over, scolded them both, ended the dance fest and got on with it.
And today we're all a bit better off for it.
