UPDATED APRIL 1, 2:00 p.m. ET: As many suspected, Davis’ claim of shaving his trademark “unibrow” was an elaborate April Fool’s Day joke. Sunday, Davis confirmed as much via Twitter.
But it seems that Davis may be ready to let go of his unique facial attribute. "The people have spoken, time for a little change...," he tweeted with a video of himself.
In a clip, Davis applies shaving cream to the middle of his unibrow and holds the shaver right over it. But just then, the camera drops and when we see Davis again the hair between his eyebrows are gone. It's a bit skeptical though since the camera drops and viewers don't see Davis with any leftover shaving cream on his head. Also, April Fools Day is tomorrow, after all.
Back in 2012, Davis told ESPN that his unibrow wasn't going anywhere, anytime soon. "I’m not going to change who I am," he said. "It’s me." But three days ago, Davis went to Twitter to poll whether or not he should shave it off. It was a close match as 49% voted for him to keep it and 51% said to shave it off. Now it seems like he may have taken tweeters' advice.
If it's true, this isn't the first time he got rid of it. During a 2015 appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, he revealed that he shaved it when it first came in.
"In high school one time, like sophomore year, when it first started filling in you know...I kinda felt some type of way, so I told my sister, get in the bathroom, close the door, she did it." But when it "grew back thicker," he chose to embrace it. I guess we will find out tomorrow, on the day of the prank, whether or not he made the move.
