    2. Powerful Yogurt

    theatlanticwire.com

    Greek, Indian, Russian and Middle Eastern dudes demand to have this brogurt instead of whatever the hell they've been eating forever. Now they will only eat grenade-flavored American yogurt in metal crates.

    3. Reebok

    Leave decency for the wussies, bruh.

    4. Moosehead Beer

    5. Billy Tea

    "True story, I'm a bruh," says 18th Century man withering from consumption on an East India Company barge. Immediately afterwards he dies.

    6. Molson Beer

    If you don't buy Edge Man body spray, so help me god, I will rate your ding-dong 2 stars on Yelp.

    16. McCoy's Man Crisps
