Thanks to professional athletes like Antonio Brown, twerking lives.

The booty-popping move seemed to have reached its peak popularity a while back, but Brown freshened it up in an NFL game Monday night.

The Steelers receiver celebrated his third-quarter touchdown reception against the host Washington Redskins by twerking up a storm in the end zone.

No stranger to dance moves, being a “Dancing With The Stars” alum, Brown was nonetheless penalized for excessive celebration. A bylaw even covers “sexually suggestive” actions, CBS pointed out.

The so-called “No Fun League” is no fan of post-touchdown routines, but Brown scored big points for preserving dance history. The Steelers won, 38-16.

Last month, tennis star Serena Williams appeared in a twerking tutorial for Self Magazine.

The next generation of twerkers appreciates your noble efforts, athletes!
