Everyone can officially stop talking about eyebrows.

On Tuesday, EA Sports released a video that showed Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson wagering an eyebrow on Sunday Night’s game.

On Wednesday, Kaepernick and Wilson both downplayed the bet.

Following the 49ers’ 29-3 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, the payoff arrived in the form of a YouTube video. The video was clearly shot in advance. Kaepernick’s facial hair in the video doesn’t match how he looked on Sunday night.


Here’s Kaepernick after Sunday’s game. He is shown shaving his eyebrow before showering and putting on his street clothes in the video below.

EA Sports’ publicity stunt to promote Madden 25 almost worked too well. They probably should have quit while they were ahead.
