It could be something you'd expect the late Macho Man to do while entering the ring, but Collin Kaepernick's biceps get a peck every time he scores and now fans have caught helping it become the latest trend in touchdown celebrations. It's called "Kaepernicking."

Creative huh?

Thanks to Twitter, we have a bunch of these photos available for you. Before we get to that however, checkout the video so you can see for yourself what exactly Kaepernick does. Pardon the audio, you might want to watch it on mute as there's a person wheezing with excitement in the background.

Pose, flex and "kiss." That's all it takes.

Now let's see how the fans do it.

The funniest one has to be one to the far left posted by @darrenrovell. The lady is Kaepnericking in front of a Green Bay Packers fan who is "discount double-checking," which is a move made famous by quarterback Aaron Rodgers. 

Obviously, we have to give props to the woman actually wearing the Kaepernick gear and also Kaepernicking. So thank you @MissESPN for taking the time to pose for the camera.

The guy on the right, well, I guess even Patrick Willis fans also think Kaepernicking is cool. This pic was tweeted and posted by @SirEscoVII.

This might become the new trend in the NFL after Tim Tebow had a quiet 2012 campaign following a season with the New York Jets. Kaepernick, on the other hand, is playing for a chance to make the Super Bowl as his 49ers will take on the Atlanta Falcons next week in the NFC Championship game. 

On Saturday, in his first career playoff start, Kaepernick lit up the Packers for a record 181 rushing yards and two touchdowns. He passed for 263 yards and two touchdowns as the 49ers crushed the Packers 45-31. 

Kaepernick is slowly setting himself aside as one of the most captivating figures in the NFL. He is filled with tattoos expressing his religious beliefs and had no problem taking over for the 49ers at the quarterback position, placing Alex Smith on the bench. 

The 49ers and Falcons face off on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET for a chance to represent the NFC in Super Bowl XLVII.
