Super Beerio Brothers



           Today's post is about the ridiculous restaurants that have opened near each of us.
           To start with, a frozen yogurt shop just opened behind my (Bryan's) house. It's called Yogurt Brothers, and if you're crafty enough to Google it, you now know where I live. Please don't come to my house and gang rape me.
           What I love most about this new store is the logo.

          Look familiar? Of course it does. The only way this could have been more of a Mario Bros. rip off was if they were eating yogurt out of a big green PVC pipe.
          I'd like to think the owner justified this by saying, "Well, it's not a COMPLETE rip off, so long as they're both blonde and Luigi has no mustache" (Luigi looks fucking stupid without a mustache. There, I said it. The Super Mario Bros. may be the only 2 men in existence who look like child molesters WITHOUT a mustache).

          But it got me thinking. Maybe we're going about things all wrong. Maybe we just need a little makeover.


Actually, that sounds like a horrible idea. But it gives me another (probably horrible) idea.

You see, I think the Yogurt Brothers had the right idea. They just forgot one key element. Sex sells.

"BlogRaider"

Good luck shaking that image from your head for the rest of the day.

On that note, let's turn this over to Brandon...

Heya guys, so there are a couple places I wanted to mention. The first is a semi-legal, trademark humping convenience store in a rough Chicago neighborhood called Eleven-7. Not '7-Eleven,' like the millions of other convenience stores in the world, but a dodgy ripoff. Sorry I don't have a photo to share, but it really isn't the kind of neighborhood where I want to stop the car and snap a photo. But it got me to thinking, if only I could modify a well-known logo with Bryan's and my head on it, maybe it would help us reach a bigger fan market. Here's what I came up with...



Secondly, I thought it was pretty genius of the local franchise chain below to capitalize on its location in a highly Jewish neighborhood here in the city.


And it got me thinking, this blog could certainly do with a few more friends in the Jewish community, right? In that vein, I propose the following unoffensive wardrobe changes to our comic characters. What do you think?






Cheers and stay classy folks,

Brandon and Bryan

  4. I would take my car to the PEPBOYS. The comic version of you two seem much more like a mechanic than the guy in the middle (no offense?)

  5. I have to agree with you on the Mario Bros looking like child molesters without their moustaches. What's worse, I find myself wanting to find images of Mario and Luigi without moustaches. Plus, just googling moustache has brought about a world of trouble.

  10. They’re real, and they’re spectacular
    Please tell me you are talking about the guns…

    As for the Mario Brothers looking like Child Molesters without their ‘taches, it can’t be any great surprise, as I always felt they look like child molesters with them….

  11. oy vey! you mean you're not jewish?!?!

  12. Like most expert bloggers do, I looked only at the pictures, and noticed a few things:
    Mustache-less yo-bro (The abbreviation I came up with, I think it's pretty cool) looks like a serial killer. Just saying. Also, It's "pika" not "peeka." Seriously, what type of Pokemon is named "peekachu." The perverted kind, that's who.

  13. Love the pokemon reference. I am beginning to think I am one of the few people in the world who is just a bit clueless about Mario Bros.

  14. Good grief I don't care whether they're real or not now, where's the bleach for my eyes.

  15. you know that post is going to offend some jewish person right?
    ahhh, whatever
    do. it. again.

    ReplyDelete
  16. LOL!

    I THINK JEWS ARE SEXY, so I welcome the change. By "sexy," I mean "there's something fascinating about how Jews are rich, shrewd, and fantastic businessmen."

    Whoever said money didn't work was LYING.

    As for wardrobe changes...I'd suggest your "birthday suit" but...


    Nah, keep it PG. ;)

  17. WOW!! Just plain funny. If only you could incorporate the woman riding the shark into your branding scheme.

  18. far too busy to google your home, due to eating delicious mozzarella sticks for breakfast. great comics too lol

  19. They look like plumbers selling yogurt. BTW, I see you...

    ReplyDelete
  20. LOL @ Jewish Brandon? speaking spanish. haha.

    i was thinkin', could yogurt brothers, actually be run by super mario brothers? they've just re-invented themselves? I'd imagine they'd be quite old now, so they dyed their grey hair to blonde (or lady gaga yellow) to make themselves look younger, and luigi is still living with his mom so shaved his mo' to try look even younger and hopefully find a gf and move out...also 'YOshi' is now extinct, so they moved onto 'YOgurt'...

  21. The YB poster is funnier than your doodles.Loved the tricked out pepboys poster.

    ReplyDelete
  22. we've got places like that around here too.

    my favorite is a ice cream store called Mar-vel, which looks EXACTLY like a carvell but kinda-not

    ReplyDelete
  23. Why have a good idea of your own when you can just rip off someone else's.

    Reminds of me Mc Dowell's in Coming To America

  24. An absolutely funny and good post, you're getting followed just cos of the laughs I got, I can't decide if I want Mario Bros. or Pikachu endorsed yogurt though.

    ReplyDelete
  25. googled, and found! no gang rape, lets just wrestle. I'll bring brownies!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That place looks great. It has my support. Except he does look worse without the mustache.

  27. Where do you guys live, China? You can't blatantly rip off licensed products like the Yogurt bros did unless you're the Go-Bots.

    ReplyDelete
  28. There's nothing like a good rip-off, PepBoys!

  30. If you guys grow mustaches will you look less like child molesters?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I can't think of a better way to step back into the blogosphere than with a beer and a couple of hysterical PokeBloggers. I wonder if Yogurt Brothers will release any Nintendo games? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh wow. Whoever thought that Mario Brothers rip off was a good idea? I mean, putting the whole, "let's rip off Mario Brothers and just make them blonde and dumbfuck looking" thing, the logo looks like a turd. I'm pretty sure my dog has nicer look turds in the yard. And those go away after a while, which makes them infinitely better.

  33. *Putting ASIDE the whole, "(so on and so forth genius amazing comment on your blog)"

  34. why would anyone want to ruin the mario bros by turning them blonde?
    no offence, but they're like an icon. and most importantly dark-haired and mustachioed.
    it's like abusing their image to change that.
