Eric Branch of the Francisco Chronicle reported on Twitter that Kaepernick filed to trademark his signature touchdown pose, “Kaepernicking,” through the U.S Patent and Trademark office on Wednesday.

The craze comes out of Kaepernick’s tendency to celebrate touchdowns by flexing his right arm and kissing his bicep, has led to a flood of fan-generated Internet photos copying the pose.

“Kaepernicking” joins “Gronking”, “Bradying”, “Griffining”, “Tebowing” and whatever else fans think up of next.
