Forget the beard, “fear the brow.” Anthony Davis was making headlines last week because of his talents, but also because of his attitude toward a rather unfortunate facial hair. You can now let your dream of making a profit off of your excess eyebrow hair go because Anthony Davis has trademarked the “unibrow.” I honestly didn’t think someone would ever want to trademark such a thing – but it has happened.
Davis was the first round draft pick in the 2012 NBA draft and picked up by the New Orleans Hornets where I’m sure fans will quickly adapt to the brow. During his one year at the University of Kentucky, fans got very creative, making signs and t-shirts that said “Bow to the Brow” and “Brow Down.” Even the mascot sported a unibrow! He’s not the least bit offended about the attention his facial hair has created; and not only is he refusing to groom it, he’s making it his signature, legally.
“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.”
In addition to registering the popularity of his eyebrow hair, Davis has trademarked the phrases “Fear the Brow” and “Raise The Brow.”
Davis has some ridiculous talent, so he can rock any kind of facial hair he wants. I just hope the “unibrow” doesn’t replace the “beard” in popularity. Unibrows cannot be the norm!
