Kaepernicking Craze: The New Tebowing!

by at . Comments

Kaepernicking. It's like Tebowing, only the quarterback is actually good!

The new craze sweeping the nation (or at least the Bay Area) pertains to San Francisco 49ers star Colin Kaepernick and his bicep-kissing touchdown pose.

After a 56-yard touchdown run Saturday in the team's win over Green Bay, Kaepernick's brief celebration sparked a huge social media reaction.

The catchy fad was already happening, but it truly exploded on this big stage after his performance against the Packers, and it's easy to see why.

The second-year quarterback, who's gone from backup to national sensation in a matter of months, has his team one victory away from the Super Bowl.

Kaepernick’s swagger, confidence and success have all been big factors behind this latest craze, although there is an element of irony to it all.

Given how the agile signal-caller uses his legs as much, if not more than his throwing arm, maybe he should considering kissing his hamstrings instead?

Anyway, check out Colin's huge TD run this weekend, and a fan video from a young 49ers supporter who's clearly feeling the Kaepernicking craze these days:
