Fist Bumping Jumps the Shark

Sorry to keep bringing it up, but I'm fascinated by the fascination.

This USA Today photo makes the pound look like a dated greeting only used by politicians and Iowa farmers. Thanks Obama.

Update: Apparently the term "Jump the Shark" may be tired as well. A funny replacement being pushed is "Nuke The Fridge." Urban Dictionary explains:
The term comes from the film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, in which, near the start of the movie, Harrison Ford's character survives a nuclear detonation by climbing into a kitchen fridge, which is then blown hundreds of feet through the sky whilst the town disintegrates. He then emerges from the fridge with no apparent injury. Later in the movie, the audience is expected to fear for his safety in a normal fistfight.
Here's video evidence. How does something like this make it into a movie?
