A comic whose slow-motion impression of a footballer celebrating has been watched by millions online has said the reaction has been "overwhelming".

Karl Porter's routine has been widely shared online, with his Instagram post receiving more than 3.3 million views. It has also garnered thousands of comments, including one from the Premier League asking who inspired it.


  1. Elaborate: containing a lot of careful detail or many detailed parts
    ”The goal celebration was extremely elaborate.”

  2. Mimic: to copy the way in which a particular person usually speaks and moves
    ”Many people like to mimic Ronaldo’s famous celebration”

  3. Spontaneous: happening or done in a natural, often sudden way, without any planning or without being forced
    ”The striker spontaneously celebrated by running straight to the bench to celebrate.”
