Jan. 14 (UPI) -- San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick put an end to the Tebowing trend when he planted a kiss on his bicep Saturday after a 56-yard-touchdown run against the Green Bay Packers.
Technically, Ron Artest and Metta World Peace got in on the arm-kissing act before Kaepernick's Saturday night celebration, but the second-year QB turned it into the social media craze of the moment.
Like Tebowing, Planking and Eastwooding before it, Twitter users shared photos of themselves "Kaepernicking."
