provenance/origin: “bromitment” is a portmanteau of the two words “brother” and “commitment”. new zealand director chris graham coined the term on the set of sione’s wedding in 2006. sione’s wedding was a film celebrating a polynesian wedding and lifestyle in a new zealand context. graham used the term on the set to remind cast members to make time for their mates regardless of other familial or romantic commitments. pepsi later employed the term in 2011 in a new zealand-based campaign.
