Does that mean he’s never heard of “Science Bros,” an Internet subculture celebrating the friendship of Bruce Banner and Tony Stark, the characters Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. played in The Avengers?
“No, what is that?” he asked.
And then the giggles began.
“Yes! It’s me and Robert! Look at this! There’s thousands of them!” Ruffalo tried to contain himself. “It’s called the Science Bros. This is awesome. I’ve never heard of it. Why hasn’t anyone told me about that?”
“So, are they all quasi-homoerotic?” he asked. “Like tinged with … ” Yup. “That’s cute!”
Is he now a Science Bros shipper, then? “Yeah! I love it; it’s awesome,” Ruffalo enthused. “I endorse it 100 percent. You know what it is? It’s open-source creativity.”
Ruffalo couldn’t wait to drop his newfound knowledge bomb on Downey Jr. “I’m going to call him and tell him, and he’s going to laugh his ass off,” Ruffalo said. “He’ll love that.”

I don’t care how you feel about friendship or magic literally everybody needs to watch this video right now
FINALLY SOMEBODY GETS IT
This is pretty much it, good video. In fact, this video talks about one of the major conflicts a lot of girls (like me!) have in adolescence: the concept of femininity is bogged down with so much social bullshit and systematic unfairness (and believe me, even as little kids we can tell) that lots of us feel we have to reject feminine things because we don’t want any of that crap. Even if we like it.
And I suspect, this goes for boys too. Because things associated with girls are also associated with that social bullshit, and they get constantly shamed by their peers to maintain their masculinity (The ‘Fag Discourse’, from C.J. Pascoe, this is an excerpt from a book I think all bronies should read) in adolescence, so they can’t easily take coded feminine things out of their dark hole either.
I would have felt way less ashamed of myself when I was a little kid if I had discourse like this to follow.
This video is spot on, and I encourage everyone to watch it, even if you’re not a pegasister or a brony.
Applause gif that I can’t dig up right now.
Yes, yes, yes. This is exactly why I fell in love with this show.
I WAS AFRAID I WAS GOIG TO GET MAD AT THIS VIDEO BUT HOLY CRAP IT WAS SO GOOD
I DON’T CARE IF YOU DON’T WATCH THE SHOW YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS :U
[he kept saying “feminity” instead of “femininity” though omg]
Wow. I’m actually impressed.
I can’t put into words just how happy I am that this exists.
You know what? This gets my seal of approval. Even without relation to bronies or MLP in general, this is a rule that more and more television shows, video games, comic books, and novels should follow.
Wow. Just. Whoa.
hot damn…NAILED IT
“still get excited when they get to be a goddamn princess”
DYING OF LAUGHTER. but no really, he got this one dead on. well done.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit has been one of my favorite movies for pretty much most of my life. There is a bit of debate over whether or not I once owned it and the VHS was lost along the way, or if I just seemed to have a permanent loan out from the local library.
Either way, now I have it on DVD and can watch Eddie and Roger any time I want. :)
