Fortnite has been well-documented as a favorite game among various NFL players.
Since its release in 2017, Fortnite: Battle Royale is one of the most popular titles in mainstream culture, and can often be found being played by high-profile individuals.
Especially with a large quantity of emotes and dances, athletes have brought Fortnite to a new level by mimicking them for celebrations, rituals, and other instances.
During their second game of the season against the Washington Redskins, Colts rookie Nyheim Hines did the infamous ‘Orange Justice’ dance after his first career NFL touchdown.

‘Orange Justice’ gained popularity after Epic Games hosted the ‘Boogie Down Challenge’ which tasked community members to create their own dances.
Hines is not the first members of the Colts organization to pay homage to Fortnite on the field, with Eric Ebron celebrating a touchdown in week one by getting ‘revived’ by his teammates.
