Sean Payton’s locker room dance inspired a song

For many years, Saints wins were punctuated by team owner Tom Benson dancing on the field.

There’s something new this year, though. The Saints’ 31-26 victory over the Panthers in the Wild Card round was followed by coach Sean Payton showing off his moves in the locker room while the team celebrated. Video of the dance made the rounds on social media and, New Orleans being a musical town, inspired a song.

Musician Shamarr Allen wrote “Hit the Sean Payton” shortly after the game and the song has made the rounds in New Orleans, including making its way into the team’s locker room after Wednesday’s practice.

“He was like, ‘You know what, I’m gonna show the world my skills,’ and he did,” guard Larry Warford said, via ESPN.com. “[The music video] looked dope. Hopefully we’ll be dancing again after the game. ‘Hit the Sean Payton,’ right?”

Payton called himself “overwhelmed” by the song, which will likely become an even bigger hit if Payton’s dancing to it after Sunday’s game in Minnesota.

    Minnesota fans have been running their mouths as if their team has been a powerhouse in the league for the last decade.

  4. They won’t dance again this week when they lose. Cheaters even have the face to dance when putting bounty on Favre. What a shame. Payton needs to be ban for life.

  5. Saints and packers fans telling Vikings fans to enjoy when they lose this week. Lol. Are you still gonna show ur silly face again when Saints get destroyed Sunday?

  6. I think instead of dancing to “Hit the Sean Peyton” he should be dancing to an old Genesis song…

    I can’t dance, I can’t talk
    Only thing about me is the way I walk
    I can’t dance, I can’t sing
    I’m just standing here selling everything

  7. Will the NFL want 4 star QBs in the AFC/NFC Championships??? I think they do for ratings!

  8. 9 years ago, and the Bounty Gate stuff still comes into play, and all they did was play tough like any other championship team does, yet they got serious penalties inflicted on them. They took their lumps, and they’re back, so now Viking fans will need to come up with a new excuse after they get beat this week…

  9. Sorry, awkward white man dance was awkward.

    This is why a team like that doesn’t get it. If your coach is doing a dance after a playoff win, you have issues.

  10. Geez, Heaven forbid a coach have fun with team. When I played, I would’ve loved to see my coach dance after a playoff win. That’s the kind of stuff that brings a team together.

    Some of y’all need to lighten up. After all, it is a GAME.

  11. There are unconfirmed reports that the full title of the song was “Hit the Sean Payton and get your $1000”.

  12. Saints and packers fans telling Vikings fans to enjoy when they lose this week. Lol. Are you still gonna show ur silly face again when Saints get destroyed Sunday?

    Just watch….just watch I tell you (LOL)

    If you took the time to post a negative comment about a coach celebrating with his team after a playoff win, you’re the one who has issues.

  14. By the 4th quarter of this game Sunday only thing you will hear in the Vikings’ stadium is Who Dat chants with Sean Payton still dancing……..

    I’m sorry if our excitement offends you. We have confidence in our team because we’ve been watching them all year. I’m not sure what previous years have to do with anything. Saints fans have been running their mouths just as much and they finished 7-9 four of the last five years.

  16. Yes. They watched them all year play statistically the worst offenses the league has to offer, save maybe five games, three of which they lost, and a fourth where they gave up 30 points to the Redskins. Don’t you know that’s Superbowl winning stuff right there????

    All I see is a bunch of Vikings fans (including those who are friends of mine and aren’t even on this board) running their mouths about how they’re going to destroy the Saints.

    I’ve seen a few Saints fans doing it too, although I have discounted that to some extent because their comments appear to indicate they’re about 14 years old. But they haven’t been as obnoxious and boisterous as Vikings fans.

    I think it should be a great game. But if I’m a fan, I am spreading a little respect in what literally looks like the NFC representative in the Super Bowl.

  18. Yes. They watched them all year play statistically the worst offenses the league has to offer, save maybe five games, three of which they lost, and a fourth where they gave up 30 points to the Redskins. Don’t you know that’s Superbowl winning stuff right there????

    you do realize the season ending strength of schedule has the Vikings and saints in a virtual dead heat, don’t you?

    Of course you don’t because you are a toolbox.

    Packers fans sure aren’t very smart- thanks for an accurate representation of them.
