Earlier this year, Colin Kaepernick (along with other athletes like Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Garnett) made his acting debut in a commercial for the popular headphone line ‘Beats by Dre’ which featured the quarterback dealing with the tough Seattle Seahawks crowd.
Harbaugh said the art imitating life is somewhat real, suggesting the commercials portrayal has some accurate moments:
“I love it. I absolutely love it,” the 49ers coach said of the ad in which Kaepernick escapes the taunts of opposing fans by slipping on a pair of black headphones. “It’s somewhat like that,” Harbaugh said of arriving at an opponent’s stadium. “Yeah, definitely. Riding in and the fans are all out there. Sometimes they’re the way that they are in the video.”
