Is "The Brow" no more?

New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is fine, but the inspiration for his nickname might be gone forever.

Davis posted a video on Instagram on Saturday saying he was ready to "make a drastic change in my life" and do "something I've been thinking about for awhile."

He then grabbed shaving cream and a razor and reached toward his signature unibrow, when the camera mysteriously flipped away. It returned to show Davis seemingly unibrowless, saying, "Big moment. New AD, new brow. Let's get it."

However, with the video coming out on April Fool's Eve, some aren't buying it. Several Twitter sleuths posited that Davis is simply pulling a stunt as part of a marketing campaign. The towel Davis is holding, adorned with Red Bull logos, fits that theory.

We should know for sure by Sunday afternoon when the Pelicans get back in action at home against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
