Kaepernicking: Best PHOTOS, GIFS, and Memes

By Staff Reporter, Posted: 01/14/13 10:30AM EST

Could this be the newest internet meme craze? After the San Francisco 49er's win over the weekend, a new Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr meme popped up: Kaepernicking.

That's named after Colin Kaepernick, the backup quarterback who's now a net sensation after he kissed his bicep following a 56-yard touchdown run. That run placed him in the record books and it's led to a huge social media reaction from 49ers fans.

Watch an animated gif here. It's also made its rounds on tumblr, a blog that specializes in viral content. 

Could Kaepernick's rags to riches story follow the footsteps of Linsanity and Tebowing?

It's on YouTube too, check out this fan video, featuring an adorable little girl.

But wait, USA Today has a column claiming Kaepernick's move is a ripoff of a former WWE wrestler, by the name of Scott "Big Poppa" Pump.

And hey, here's Steve Nash doing it too -- years ago.
