Anthony Davis and His Unibrow Aren't Going Anywhere
University of Kentucky basketball star Anthony Davis is expected to be the first overall pick in this year’s NBA draft, which will start in just a couple of hours. His talent and hard work are about to pay off big time as he begins his career as a professional athlete.
On such an important day, you should look as good as possible. Cameras will be everywhere and his face will be plastered across websites and newspapers around the world. But, there is one problem.
Davis has a little issue going on in the middle of his face. Yes, ladies and gents, he only has one eyebrow. In this day and age, with so many brow removal options available (tweezing, threading, razor, waxing), you can’t help but wonder why Davis does nothing about this affliction. Help is available to you, man!
The answer? Because he doesn’t want to. In fact, Davis is proud of the singular mass of hair above his eyes. And he’s taking things a step further—he is getting his unibrow trademarked
Per ABC News,
"In anticipation of his imminent rise to national stardom, Davis trademarked the phrases "Raise the Brow" and "Fear the Brow." Widely expected to be drafted by the New Orleans Hornets in Thursday's draft, Davis said he saw profit potential in leaving his eyebrows connected.
I don't want anyone to try to grow a unibrow because of me and then try to make money off of it," Davis told CNBC. "Me and my family decided to trademark it because it's very unique.”
The University of Kentucky’s athletic department witnessed the Davis family first hand having fun with the added attention the player’s monobrow brought him. The department’s marketing director, Jason Schafler" we saw his mother in a 'Fear the Brow' T-shirt, and she had penciled in a unibrow on her face."
Tonight will undoubtedly be a huge night for the Davis family. Perhaps they will all attend the event with penciled in brows as homage to Anthony, a la his mother. I truly hope not, though.
