Good: Anthony Davis Trademarks his Brow
Anthony Davis, went No.1 to the New Orleans Hornets in the NBA draft this past Thursday. But before he went off to the NBA Davis had to take care of his brows! Davis knows 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.”
It seems last year as a freshman at Kentucky Davis missed out on a lot of “Brow” merchandise. Davis was a star at Kentucky and helped lead the Wildcats to a National Championship. Local Kentucky merchants decided they would capitalize on the basketball stars unique feature. However, as a college athlete it is prohibited by NCAA rules for Davis to capitalize on it.
Davis said he is frequently told to shave the brow but he says he would never because “everyone’s talking about it.”
