We may be a broke, poorly educated, and potentially post-office free nation, but according to a new poll, The USA is still deemed the coolest. Social networking site badoo.com asked 30,000 people across 15 countries to declare who’s the hippest. “We hear a lot in the media about anti-Americanism,” says Lloyd Price, Badoo’s Director of Marketing. “But we sometimes forget how many people across the world consider Americans seriously cool.”
Yep. Thanks to President Obama (coolest leader), Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg (coolest rappers), and Steve Jobs, (coolest geek) the United States has maintained social relevance to a random group of individuals. Rounding off the list are folks like Lady Gaga, Samuel L. Jackson, Johnny Depp and Quentin Tarantino (for real?).
The poll showed mucho Latino love as Brazilians were ranked the second coolest nationality in the Badoo poll and the coolest Latin Americans, ahead of Mexicans and Argentinians. The Spanish, in third place, were voted the coolest Europeans. Not to be ignored, the poll shows folks’ choice of the five least coolest nationalities as well.
