Icing, for the uninitiated, is a prank popular among bros (and startup cofounders, apparently), in which victims are required to drink an entire Smirnoff Ice in one chug.

The most awkward part of the above photo is that Buzz Aldrin is a recovering alcoholic. Just look at the expression on the face of the (amazing) woman to Aldrin's right. She's all, "Bish, please."
