Jets defense OWNS the internet after figuring out what Americans want instead of petulant protests

Well, here’s one way to take the consumer’s mind off disrespectful national anthem protests by NFL players.

With so many Americans boycotting the NFL in response to ill-informed millionaire players refusing to stand to honor America, the New York Jets managed to win fans back — at least temporarily.

In a Thursday night game where the Jets were well ahead of the opposing Buffalo Bills, their defense was on the field at MetLife Stadium as the broadcast returned from a commercial break.

As they waited for the TV timeout to end, the entire Jets defense broke out in dance to the music playing over the public address system — Lil Uzi Vert’s “444+222.”

The hashtag  was born and it was on, with social media users setting their own soundtracks to the video, resulting in hilarious outcomes.

Leading the hit parade was Anthony Adams, featuring the “Peanuts” theme song and the theme song to “Laverne & Shirley.”

Here’s a sampling of other offerings that are just as entertaining and prove that no matter how many times it’s done, the effort never gets old:
