Never Too Cool For Our School
While the U.S. might have a bruised image abroad, one thing the country hasn't lost is its coolness. Americans take the top spot in a Badoo.com international poll looking for the "coolest nationality."
Thirty-thousand people across 15 countries took part in the social networking website's survey, and place residents of the U.S.A. at number one on the list. Badoo Director of Marketing Lloyd Price says with the anti-Americanism reported in the media, Americans tend to forget how many people worldwide consider them "seriously cool." He explains that the U.S. "boasts the world's coolest leader, Obama; the coolest rappers, Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg; and the coolest man in technology, Steve Jobs of Apple, the man who even made geeks cool."
