Adrian Peterson slaps boy's face during touchdown celebration [VIDEO]
AP carved up the Lions defense for 171 yards and a TD during the Vikings' 34-24 win.
Adrian Peterson debuted a new and intriguing touchdown celebration yesterday afternoon after ripping through the Detroit Lions defense for a back-breaking 61-yard fourth-quarter touchdown -- The Little Kid Face Slap.
AP is known for having ridiculously strong hands, so he probably just meant to pat the young Vikings fan on the cheek. After all, Peterson's Twitter profile asks his followers to "help at-risk kids," so it's not he has it out for youngsters or something. Nonetheless, what was meant as a love tap looks amusingly like a bitch slap on film.
Here's the footage:
And if you're in the mood to watch footage of the Vikings bitch-slapping the Lions, here's yesterday's highlights (for the AP touchdown run, fast-forward to 1:43):
Let's hope Peterson has many more opportunities to slap little kids (preferably young Packers fans) after touchdown runs during the 6-4 Vikings' final six games.
