You know how most of these types of articles are all like "What a year! We saw so much stuff that other people also saw, from the highs of insert example x, to the lows of example y? From the adjective-noun combo one, to the adjective-noun combo 2, to the overly emphasized adjective-noun combo three? Conclude with over-the-top statement as to how this was certainly not a year to forget?"
Yea. Definitely getting a bit annoying.
That said, here's some people that were a big deal this year in the loosely defined realm of popular Bro culture:
Joss Whedon - Writer, Director
If you’re like me, you thought this clown’s* name was “Josh” for the longest time. Then you saw “The Avengers,” and were like “oh man, nah I totally knew it was ‘Joss.’”
Definitely excited for more Whedon, who will be the operational mastermind behind the next Avengers movie as well.
*a clown who co-wrote 1995’s Toy Story and mega-hit “Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Frank Ocean - R&B Artist
In addition to some socio-cultural trailblazing, the Odd Future Member had one of the best years an artist can possibly have. Fittingly, his work has been recognized with an impressive six Grammy Nominations, including including best new artist, record of the year (Thinkin’ Bout You), and album of the year (channel ORANGE)
The Lakers Bros - Dopest People Alive
There’s fifteen minutes of fame, there’s that Sugar Ray album called 14:59, and then there’s the Lakers Bros. Possibly the best GIF of all-time, this is viral potential at its best. The Lakers Bros have made this world just that much of a better place.
Psy - Viral Human
Peter Higgs - Science!
A with a rare appearance on these types of list, we have Science!
Peter Higgs has been credited with the discovery of the Higgs Boson, more commonly known as “the God particle.” This is a big deal because it likely validates this important thing in physics called the standard model, and primarily explains how mass is created. Meaning, this thing is part of, and responsible for pretty much everything that exists.
