One NFL referee was sounding a lot like a fun guy on Sunday.
Referee Shawn Smith, who was officiating the Week 17 contest between the Miami Dolphins and the Tennessee Titans, went viral for a hilarious reason. Before announcing a penalty in the second quarter, Smith got the crowd’s attention by saying, “Hey, hey hey.”

That led everyone on Twitter to make the same joke — that Smith sounded exactly like LA Clippers star Kawhi Leonard.
Ref decided to do his best Kawhi impression.
The stadium was loving it

Is Kawhi Leonard the ref in the Titans game today?

Leonard famously said, “Hey, hey, hey,” to welcome Clippers fans during his first game with the team in 2019, sparking a legendary meme.

The Titans would go on to win the game 34-3, but Smith was the real winner of the day. This might have even been a better viral moment than the one we saw from another referee earlier in the weekend.
