Default The world still thinks that Americans are the coolest

LONDON (Reuters) - They may be witnessing their global superpower influence decline in the face of challenges from other emerging players on the world stage, but Americans have been voted the world's "coolest nationality" in an international poll.

Social networking site Badoo.com (http://www.badoo.com) asked 30,000 people across 15 countries to name the coolest nationality and also found that the Spanish were considered the coolest Europeans, Brazilians the coolest Latin Americans and Belgians the globe's least cool nationality.

"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."

Of course, not all Americans are cool far from it. Some like Snoop Dogg, Lady Gaga, Samuel L. Jackson, Johnny Depp and Quentin Tarantino are way cooler than others.

Americans, however, are the dudes who invented cool and who still embody it in many fields from music to movies and TV to technology.

"America," says Price, "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."

Brazilians are ranked the second coolest nationality in the Badoo poll and the coolest Latin Americans, ahead of Mexicans and Argentinians. The Spanish, in third place, are the coolest Europeans.

The French are voted cooler than the British, and Canadians cooler than the Belgians. This may come as a relief for Canadians, who are sometimes viewed as chronically uncool.

Or, as Michael Ignatieff, the Canadian politician, once put it: "Paris, Texas stands as a metaphor for broken dreams; Paris, Saskatchewan just sounds ridiculous."


--THE TEN COOLEST NATIONALITIES:

1. Americans

2. Brazilians

3. Spanish

4. Italians

5. French

6. British

7. Dutch

8. Mexicans

9. Argentinians

10. Russians



--The five least coolest:

1. Belgians

2. Poles

3. Turks

4. Canadians

5. Germans

Funny cos its based on people watching pussy actors pretending to be bad ass. If the film industry didn't exist America would be bottom of the list.

i dont think being cool is a big accomplishment. it relates to inflated egos it seems. seems this list think being cool means purposely standing out and flaunting yourself

like the top 6 are americans, brazilians, spanish, italians, french and british. the stereotype of these countries (except brazil probably) are flashy well known countries. (how british is on that list i dont know).... they dont even have cool stereotype

what about qualities like humbleness and modesty, like Finland or thailand or china

just rambling i guess

I guess those riots helped get rid of some bad stereotypes.

Netherlands is 7 I think we're known for humbleness & modesty.
Well it's mostly known for weed, but that's not a characteristic.
