s and small brains
became a popular
combination for men
in the early nineties
, as males became objectified
for a change. Muscle-bound hunk
s were transformed into the newest sex symbol archetype
: the Himbo.
Brawny model Lucky Vanous shot to stardom by removing his shirt in front of a group of admiring office women in a 1994 Diet Coke commercial. Long-harried Italian muscle-boy and box-of-rocks Fabio posed for the covers of heavy breathing bodice rippers, and David Hasselhoff played a bare-chested lifeguard eternally sucking in his gut on Baywatch, the most watched television show on the planet (although not entirely because of David's assets). In Hollywood, Keanu Reeves's near-mute SWAT-team cop Jack Traven in Speed set the standard.
Personally, I don't believe that George Dubya fits the overall himbo model, he is simply an idiot.
