Man Candidate #2: The Euro-man
Specimen: David Beckham
1. He’s British, so he’s got a cooler accent than you.
2. He can “bend it.”
3. He sports the combo blow-hawk (bleached faux hawk).
4. He’s richer than you.
5. He plays football (in the USA, we refer to this as “soccer”). Euro-men prefer sports of sophistication and dignity. In other words, if its European, its cool.
Summary: David Beckham is the quintessential Hollywood image of pure and undefiled masculinity. This brand of manhood exudes a powerful image: money, sex, athletic prowess, European sophistication, style, and trans-Atlantic condescension. He gets paid $250 million dollars to show America how Euro-men roll.
