NFL players have done some crazy touchdown celebrations in the end zone, but Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot may have taken the cake when he jumped into an oversized Salvation Army kettle after his franchise-record-setting 13th rushing touchdown of his rookie season.

Elliot jumped in the kettle during the Cowboys 26-20 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night, quickly hiding from everybody before popping out.

As is customary with the No Fun League, Elliot was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.  The NFL, however, announced Monday morning that he would not be fined for the celebration.

“I mean it’s just sitting there right in the end zone, you know. It’s the perfect celebration,” Elliot said after the game. “They’re one of our biggest partners, so I had to show them a little bit of love.”

Elliott’s score broke Tony Dorsett’s team record for most touchdown runs by a rookie in Dallas history. The 2-yard run on third-and-goal gave the Cowboys a 10-3 lead in the second quarter.  Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was unsurprisingly not upset by the move, and even said Elliot should be awarded.

“I think the Salvation Army should give him the highest award,” Jones said after the game. “My dream would be for the NFL to really fine me a lot of money and I’ll take them to the Supreme Court and we’ll get the Salvation Army more attention than anybody can get them. So let’s go.”
