1.
An event in which a bro who has recently undergone emotional turmoil is put at ease by the mere act of being around his brethren, though in actuality they offer no constructive advice or amelioration of his dilemma. It is oftentimes used in complete substitution of problem solving and leads to the inability to handle trying situations.
Bro 1: "Yeah, last night I found out my girlfriend had been cheating on me. I was bummed at first but then all the guys went and got some Buds and watched 300 so it's whatever."
Bro 2: "You know, the placebro effect is only temporarily useful. Real talk, you're going to have sort out your problems at some point".
