About

Be Like Bro refers to a character used in a series of memes who comments on the picture, the character who says the caption. The character, which has a bushy beard and blood-shot eyes (occasionally wearing a hat or with hair), is generally used in the memes by the account "Be Like Bro," and is referred to as "bro." Bro is also used in a similar fashion and in conjunction with Rage Comics.

Origin

The earliest known usage of the character comes from the Facebook[1] page "BelykBro" (pronounced: Be Like Bro), who posted a picture of the character on March 14th, 2016. The picture (shown below) received more than 11,000 reactions, 180 shares and 400 comments.



Spread

In addition to being a popular character on Facebook and Instagram, the character is also a staple of the subreddit /r/ComedyCemetery[4]. On July 7th, 2016, Redditor[5] Millhouse96 posted a webcomic of the character, waking his "bro" from his sleep to give him a sleeping pill (shown below).


Hey bro, wake up! Wake up bro. What happened bro? You forgot to have your sleeping pill bro

On April 23rd, a Wiki for the characters of the Be Like Bro comics launched, explaining the mythology of the Bro universe.[6]

As of August 2017, the Facebook[2] page BelykBro, which acts as the home for Bro memes, has more than 10 million followers and 10 million likes. The be.like.bro Instagram page has more than 1.6 million followers, sharing similar content with a watermark, leading back to the Facebook page.

The comics generally operate as multi-panel image macros. Most feature a humorous picture with "Bro" commenting on the picture (shown below). The character is also used in webcomics, usually talking to himself.


Why didn't you come to school yesterday? I was sick. You are lying. Nope, i was sick of you and this school. Tina, I have two questions. What? Where have you been all of my life. So sweet, and the next question? Can you go back there? tレ ty When you realise your Internet pack is over... And you have been using it from your main balance!

Other times, the character is used to caption calls to action, asking the user to share the picture. On August 1st, 2017, the page[3] posted a picture of Nicki Minaj eating a turkey leg with the caption "Today is national chicken's day. Mention a friend who loves chicken." The post received more than 72,000 reactions 3,500 shares and 32,000 comments.
