The rugby union star, who has 70 caps and 154 points for the Wallabies, is no stranger to us Aussie sports fans.

Cooper is widely regarded as one of the most exciting players to grace the field in recent years and was instrumental in guiding the Queensland Reds to a Super Rugby title in 2011.

But it appears Cooper's name has recently landed on the radar of fans in the United States too.

Last week, the 32-year-old posted a carousel video on Instagram displaying some unique passing techniques with an American football.

Cooper can be seen throwing the pig skin huge distances by flicking it with the outside of his hand to a receiver.

The original caption on his video read: "Don't be afraid of being different, be afraid of being the same as everyone else... embrace your weirdness".

That video alone had almost 250,000 views and nearly 1000 likes on Instagram.

And it wasn't long before others started to take notice - mainly our friends from across the pond.

Instagram giants House of Highlights, who are run by American sports broadcaster ESPN, posted the video clip to their channel and it went off!

"His throwing motions are wild," the captioned simply read.

And after just a day, the video has 290,000 views with countless people flooding to the comments section to tag their mates.

One user said: "Athletes in Australia and New Zealand different".

While another commentated: "That looks like it was played in reverse!".

And another added: "Bro that last one doesn't make sense".

American fans were clearly in awe of Cooper's unconventional passing techniques.

And one Aussie joined the chorus of sports fanatics praising Cooper on House of Highlights' video.

The Australian fan simply adding: "Come to Australia, we can all do that".
