49ers QB Colin Kaepernick loses the game, but keeps his eyebrow

49ers qb colin kaepernick loses the game but keeps his eyebrow

It was a bad night in Seattle for the San Francisco 49ers. The Seahawks dismantled the Super Bowl runner-ups in a 29-3 victory, and handed the divisional rivals their first loss of the season. For 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick though, the good news is that he gets to keep his eyebrow.

Last week a video of Kaepernick and Seahawks’ QB Russell Wilson playing Madden 25 was released by EA Sports. In it, the two decide to make a side bet on the outcome of the game, with the loser shaving off an eyebrow. It was an obvious piece of advertising, but it quickly gained national attention – even though it was later revealed to be a joke.

In a radio interview Wilson shattered the illusions of many and confirmed – shockingly – that you can’t believe everything you see on the Internet. “It was more of just a friendly, joking-around-type deal,” Wilson said. “It’s not real serious. We’ll probably do something digitally. Something like that.”

Following the 49ers’ loss, EA Sports posted the video seen below where Kaepernick says goodbye to an old friend via a razor. The clip appears to use digital trickery to present Kaepernick sans eyebrow, and there is almost certainly a similar, alternative clip of Wilson “shaving” his eyebrow hidden deep in EA Sports’ digital vaults, along with congratulations videos for the the Netherlands World Cup victory over Spain in 2010, the 49ers win over the Ravens last year, and best wishes to Tiger Woods on his happy marriage.

So while Seahawks fans don’t get the joy of watching a divisional rival’s quarterback walk around with an asymmetrical face, they can take comfort in the video below (and the beating they put on the 49ers as well).
