Americans Are the Coolest People on the Planet, Says the Rest of the World
A survey of 30,000 people in 15 nations by the social networking site Badoo.com has found that America ranks as the world's "coolest nationality."
Other countries singled out for their hip nature were Brazil (second coolest overall) and Spain (coolest in Europe.) Belgium edged out Poland for least coolest nationality status.
"We hear a lot in the media about anti-Americanism," explained Lloyd Price, Badoo's director of marketing. "But we sometimes forget how many people across the world consider Americans seriously cool."
"America 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,"Price continued.
Of course, we also have the Fonz, who is way cooler than any of the folks Price mentioned. Read on for a list of the top 10 coolest nationalities, along with the five least cool.
