It's Michigan versus Louisville on Monday and sports fans are flooding Atlanta's streets — some lucky enough to have tickets to the big dance, others packed like sardines into bars with big screen TVs.
And, of course, there are those avoiding all the chaos and watching the Final Four in the comfort of their home, with their girlfriends.
Our friends Bria and Chrissy, the Atlanta lesbian duo behind viral YouTube videos that poked fun at Chick-fil-A and Mitt Romney, made another video for the Super Bowl to sell that amazing and awesome product, Queer Beer.

Bria and Chrissy have returned from Atlanta Pride with a new video to offer encouraging words to LGBT youth. The duo, known for their satirical musical online videos, takes a more serious and inspirational approach this time, featuring Pride attendees sharing stories and words of wisdom.
From the video's description:
We went to Atlanta Pride 2012 this year and interviewed dozens of people to get their words of inspiration for LGBT youth who are afraid to come out. Hope you enjoy and find this encouraging, we loved making it. Share with someone you think this could help. Enjoy and much love. Bria and Chrissy
Atlanta lesbian duo Bria and Chrissy are quickly making quite a name for themselves.
First, it was their popular tongue-in-cheek YouTube videos poking fun at Chick-Fil-A and satirizing Mitt and Ann Romney. Then, they made a big splash at the Democratic National Convention where they landed on page 2 of the Washington Post, kissing each other while counter-protesting anti-gay demonstrators. They were also interviewed by Comedy Central for “The Daily show with Jon Stewart.”
Their wildly popular videos have garnered over 135,000 views in three months. We sat down with Bria Kam, 25, and Chrissy Chambers, 21, to talk about their newfound success.
After launching their first YouTube channel three weeks ago, Atlanta lesbian duo Bria Airb and Chrissy Chambers (a.k.a. “Bria and Chrissy”) have already garnered over 111,000 views of their comical, musical, equality-themed videos.
The girls, who write from inspiration of current events, create irreverent, tongue-in-cheek musical pieces that provoke thought, illicit laughter and, often, invite people in the LGBT community to reach out to them with issues that they are facing.
“We wait for news to happen. Something is going to happen. Something always happens,” said Bria.
