Anthony Davis and his Unibrow are on the come up
It’s hard to not talk about NCAA champ Anthony Davis without mentioning his attention slorin’ unibrow. Now, after raising some major eyebrows over the course of his college hoops career, Davis seems destined to be the #1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft but is still making smart business decisions when it comes to his infamous facial hair.
Davis, known for his connected eyebrows, trademarked the phrases “Fear The Brow” and “Raise The Brow” earlier this month.
“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.”
Davis said that people frequently tell him to cut it, but Davis said he won’t because “everyone’s talking about it.”
During Davis’ freshman year at Kentucky, where he led the Wildcats to a National Championship, Davis didn’t capitalize on all the “Brow” merchandise that was being sold due to NCAA rules which would compromise his eligibility. The school kept a close eye on merchants that selling any “Brow” merchandise.
So, don’t worry about that signature brow going anywhere too soon. When asked if a razor company could pay him to shave off his unibrow, Davis says that’s not going to happen.
“I might have a commercial where I’m acting like I’m shaving it and then throw I’ll the razor down.”
We can’t even hate on this savvy business decision! Gillette and Schick, cross at least one athlete off your list.
