Although the Shrek fanbase has existed since the release of the first movie in 2001 (and to a smaller extent the release of the original book years earlier), the Brogre movement did not officially start until late 2012. This was when ShrekChan was first established on the Internet. Shrek fans flocked to this novel new website, eventually coming together under one group: the Brogres. Since then, the Brogre movement has grown tremendously, attracting (for better or worse) the attention of websites like Tumblr, Know Your Meme, and Facebook.
Brogres share a love of doing whatever they can to please their idol, Shrek. Some of these are as follows:
- Create OC images and stories praising Shrek
- Listen to and remix Smash Mouth songs
- Pray to Shrek and/or his companions
- Spread the word about the Brogre movement
- Check themselves before they Shrek themselves
- Post on ShrekChan
- And, of course, watch the Shrek movies over and over again!
