MALE ON MONDAY – PATCH TOGETHER YOUR MANLIEST MAN
Romance writers are always looking for the perfect alpha male. So what romance writer—or reader—wouldn't sit up and take notice on reading that shave cream company Bluebeard's Revenge found that:
"Our research of 2,000 voters revealed that the most rugged alpha male on Earth would have the wisdom of George Clooney’s silvery hair, the piercing eyes of Gerard Butler, the chiseled nose of Brad Pitt, the concrete jawline of Jason Statham, and the licenced-to-kill body of Daniel Craig."
But this is what Bluebeard's Revenge decided the guy they dubbed Bradiel Buthney, a composite of the famous features looked like:
So is the sum of the parts better than the original? My first reaction was wow…look at those eyes. Then I got more critical. Daniel Craig is pretty damn good just as he is. And, I have to admit, my manliest man would be more dangerous looking. I'd prefer him to be confronting the camera head-on (he has to be looking at me, see?). Less smile, more…well, alpha. Stubble, rather than a beard. Maybe a bit of Richard Gere as Zack Mayo thrown in there. And maybe higher cheekbones and all that intensity of the young Daniel Day Lewis.
So what's your opinion? Does Bradiel do it for you? Who would YOU pick to contribute eyes, hair, smile…and, of course, body…for the sum total of your manliest male on Monday?
