Jared Odrick wasn't even born when the film was released in 1985, but that didn't stop the Miami Dolphins defensive star's strange tribute to Pee-Wee Herman.
Odrick sacked Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman on Sunday and without missing a beat, he broke out into the iconic "Tequila" dance -- much to the dismay of teammates.
"The whole Pee-Wee Herman thing is terrible," Jason Taylor told Mike Berardino of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "Odrick thinks he's cool now because they have a little song that they play in the fourth quarter. He thinks he's a trend setter. He's embarrassing himself."
Spoken like someone who's danced in public before. But it appears some Dolphins fans have fallen in love with Odrick's strange choice of celebration. During the fourth quarter of Sunday's win, Sun Life Stadium workers played "Tequila," and a surprisingly large percentage of fans danced to it.
Odrick, 23, doesn't mind the playful criticism from his aging teammate. "JT's just mad because he's been here 15 years and doesn't have a theme song yet," he said.
The younger defensive end wants the Sun Life entertainment team to play his new favorite song after all his upcoming home sacks.
Turns out this isn't the first time Odrick has used the dance routine -- just the first time anyone really noticed. The former Penn State star also danced the Tequila after a sack of Tim Tebow a few weeks ago, but since it
was the golden boy of the NFL and the Dolphins drowned in the fourth quarter, few noticed.
So why did the NFL star pick a sack dance from a film that was released 874 days before he was born? Well, Odrick's mother was the inspiration.
"It was something I enjoyed doing when I was young," Odrick told the Sun-Sentinel. "I was doing it when I was a little kid and I thought I'd bring that back. My mom actually told me to start doing it."
Oldrick has 12 tackles this season to go along with three sacks and an interception for a Dolphins team that's won two straight.
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, for those who don't remember (or erased their memory of it) follows man-child Pee-Wee Herman (Paul Reubens) around as he travels across the U.S. to find his beloved bike after it's stolen in broad daylight. With a budget of just $6 million, director Tim Burton's film ended up grossing close to seven times that for Warner Bros.

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure is iconic in large part, because of this scene.
