Pop Culture Bros Connecting with Other Bros

By on June 2, 2013

Created by an artist known only as Paper Beats Scissors, this collection of 50 illustrations depicts the single moment when two different characters from pop culture meet and give each other an empathetic fist bump due to a similarly depressing trait that they both share. For instance, when the Dark Knight and Harry Potter meet for the first time, they fist bump the fact that they are both orphans.

There are a huge amount of characters included within the series from film, television, video games, comic books, animation and technology. You can check out the full collection on the Paper Beats Scissors Tumblr page here.

We have chosen our top 25 favorites, which can be seen below:

    How did you miss using Gollum as one of the “dependent on rings” characters?!

    Nice ones! 🙂

    Though I think Charlie Brown isn’t really bald. It’s just that his blonde hair is shown like that! Maybe Caillou or Henry are more suitable candidates for it?
