Here's a conversation from the movie 'Spider-Man: Homecoming':
Ned: Dude, you have a suit, right? This is going to change our lives. We're going to have Spider-Man swing in, say you guys are tight. And then I get a fist bump or one of those half bro hugs.
What does "half bro hugs" mean? Especially the "half" part I don't understand.

    Here is an academic paper on "Hugs":

    A half bro hugs is somewhat less than a "bro hug" with the participants further away from each other than they are in the half hug.
