Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson Wager an Eyebrow on Sunday’s 49ers-Seahawks Game (Video)
EA Sports could not have picked a better pair of players to star in their ongoing Madden 25 ad campaign than Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson. The two are not only rivals for the title of “league’s best mobile quarterback,” but they are also rivals in the NFC West, where they play each other twice while trying to lead their extremely talented teams to the Super Bowl. So if you ask me, this has the potential to be the best marketing rivalry since Larry Bird and Michael Jordan hawked french fries and Big Macs.
Of course, the Kaepernick vs. Wilson Madden 25 campaign kicked off last month with an awesome (and fictional) look at the origin of their rivalry. Now they’re taking things to the next level ahead of the 49ers-Seahawks game this weekend by having the two make a very interesting wager: whoever loses shaves an eyebrow.
Take a look:
So is this bet legit? Will one of these guys really be without an eyebrow come Monday?
Well, probably not. Or at least that’s what Wilson said to KJR-AM in Seattle. “It was more of just a friendly, joking around type deal,” he explained. “It’s not real serious. We’ll probably do something digitally. Something like that.”
In other words, it’s just a commercial, guys. That being said, I’ll probably still search Twitter for #colinvsrussell on Monday.
