Last Sunday (10/17), when the Cincinnati Bengals were on their way to obliterating the hapless Detroit Lions, a Bengals fan’s phone was accidentally knocked out of his hand by tight end C.J. Uzomah while celebrating a Cincy TD. Sebastian Day undoubtedly experienced a brief moment of panic, but his team came through for him in more ways than one.

Cincinnati’s star running back Joe Mixon was nice enough to pick the phone up and return it to its owner. But not before adding a little souvenir. The phone was still recording when Mixon picked it up so, naturally, he took a quick selfie video. Bonus for Sebastian Day!

An autographed jersey or ball is one thing, but it’s not every day that you get a souvenir as unique as a selfie on your own phone from a star athlete. You can see the video below:
