John Urschel Reacts To 'Awkwardly Sensual Uh-Uh' Dance Ad


John Urschel wants to put his name in the ring for recognition as the best dancer on the team.

Players like kicker Justin Tucker and defensive tackle Brandon Williams are known for their moves, and now Urschel has stepped into dancing realm with a new ad from Gillette.

Celebrate those who shield. Tweet your own #ShieldMove to @Gillette by Jan 23 and I could give yours a name. #spon — John Urschel (@JohnCUrschel) January 7, 2016

"I think I'm really making a push to be in the upper echelon of Baltimore Ravens dancing football players," Urschel said. "I think Tucker has a step on me, but he shouldn't sleep on me."

The ad campaign features offensive linemen showing off their dancing ability, and Urschel said he was a natural fit for the gig.

"Gillette was just searching for NFL offensive linemen who have some legit dance moves, and some pretty awesome facial hair. So with myself, having both, I was a pretty natural candidate," he said. "They really just wanted me to show them what I got, and I showed them that sauce, you know. I just got it going."

Urschel's dance is called the "Awkwardly Sensual Uh-Uh," but he insists he had nothing to do with the name.

"That's not exactly what I would have called it, but who I am to try to name it? My artwork is what it is and I let people name it what they like," Urschel said. "You can't hold down good dance moves, that's all I'm saying."
