Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez shaves head to pay Super Bowl bet

Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez discusses his transfer prospects, his time at Real Madrid and talks about life at Leverkusen.

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez might look a bit different the next time you see him.

The Mexico and Bayer Leverkusen striker never had much hair to begin with, but what he had is now gone, thanks to a Super Bowl bet with ESPN presenter Sergio Dipp.

"Chicharito" bet on the Atlanta Falcons to beat the New England Patriots in the NFL's showpiece last month, and of course, things were looking good for him ... until they weren't, as the Pats staged a comeback for the ages in Houston.

The payoff? Well, see for yourself.

@sergioadippw Jalisco no te rajes... pagando la apuesta... ����‍♂️����

A post shared by Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez (@ch14_instagram) on

Yep. "Chicharito" has gone full Dr. Evil, save the scar and his own "Mini Me."

Underneath his video, Hernandez posted a famous ranchera song lyric -- Jalisco no te rajes -- which our reliable sources say loosely translates to "people from Jalisco don't back down," before acknowledging that Mexico's favourite forward always pays what he owes.

Pagando la apuesta indeed.
