Kaepernicking craze sweeps fandom: Move over Tim Tebow

After the San Francisco 49ers solidly defeated the Green Bay Packers 45-31 on their way to the NFC championship game, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's touchdown celebration took off around the internet.

Kaepernick flexed his right arm and kissed it, prompting 49ers fans to post pictures of themselves doing the same thing in various places -- at home, in bars, on the street, at work. Some fans even had their kids or family pets in on the action.

Kaepernicking actually started a few weeks ago when the QB replaced 49ers starter Alex Smith. Kaepernick has started retweeting fans posing in his signature style on Twitter.

Can the Kaepernicking take the 49ers all the way to the Super Bowl? Sunday, Jan. 20 they'll take on the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC title game at 3 p.m. ET/noon PT on FOX.
