This week on BBC Three, Thomas Gray examines exactly what it way to be today’s British man in ” The Ladventures of Thomas Gray”.
As we know, ‘BRO’ try United states for ‘LAD’. May very well not have actually realised, but that BRO is the name of a brand new personal application simply for men. It’s the Yorkie of this social software globe.
It is heavily branded with laddish imagery – like those yellow cups you can see someone chugging beer out of in frat films – and code too. It seems nearly the same as a hook-up application. Therefore could it be somewhere for direct, manly guys to date different straight, macho boys?
On additional investigation, i believe it might be a little more nuanced than that. In fact, this is actually the question I’m exploring right here…
What exactly is every thing about?
One strategy to find on, i guess. Let’s bring. er. knee deep.
This is how I decided to create a brofile (sorry, the puns is some smooth) and commence fulfilling some bros! Well, really, my editor type of said to – which performed placed me personally at heart of these episode of Nathan Barley, where funny straight guy (not like that) Dan Ashcroft will get distributed by their publisher to research ‘straying’, in other words. straight/gay boys, for an attribute he’s creating.
In any event, we digress. Anyhow, right here’s what I receive.
First of all, the ‘about me’ part is quite direct, except there is one interesting part within.
The app also lets you select a harsh skin tone and actually determine what type of ‘bro’ you’re – from brogrammer to lumber bro. I went for ‘casual bro’, because that one appeared to require the least said.
