“Classic Movies Subtitled for Bros” is perfect for frat guys who dig Clark Gable

TCM is totally bashing its head against a wall right now. For years, the classic cinema channel has been after the elusive bro demographic (Karl Malden Wednesdays? Could you guys be more obvious?), but the dude behind On the Bro'd has beat them to the punch, finally figuring out a way to smuggle Mr. Smith Goes to Washington into grimy frat-house basements across the nation. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you "Classic Movies Subtitled for Bros."

Highlights include the Dave dismantling HAL scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey reimagined as two guys having a rough night out, and Atticus Finch's stirring speech from To Kill a Mockingbird broken down into brospeak. Also, "Seriously babe, fuck that noise" needs to be reprinted on any and all Gone With the Wind memorabilia featuring the quote, "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."

If the On the Bro'd creator is taking requests, I'd like to humbly suggest the Casablanca airport scene, any of the numbers from Singin' in the Rain, and maybe a selection from Now, Voyager or Lawrence of Arabia. With any luck, I may finally be able to get my brother to watch a Humphrey Bogart movie.
