This dancing robot that took over Fox Sports was ... a kid's idea?
Cleatus is a weird monstrosity, but he's OUR weird monstrosity. His origin story is kind of what you'd expect: Fox wanted an NFL mascot so the graphics teams used the drawing of an eight-year-old to build a dancing robot who now rakes in countless millions of dollars in promotional sponsorships. Oh and he's part of the MCU. Cleatus is just weird.
