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."

Here's the touchdown run and brief smooch that started the craze:
