    Did they choose people who actually had these backgrounds (nationality, ethnicity) for this video? Because I'm pretty sure the "Italian" guy isn't actually Italian, etc. It would be more authentic if they did, seeing people with those actual backgrounds.

    that music has to go! horrible. the men with classic features, dark hair clean shaven with blue/green eyes, high cheek bones, full lips, white beautiful teeth, strait up-turned noses has my vote. Body shape should be muscular to lean. with nice thighs and rounded buttocks. and yes, the front package size does count. LOL Usually Greek, Italian, German, French men have this look.

    0:45 I suppose it must be a coincidence that around 70-80% of the population is white, then? Yes, whites are released in movies statistically more than other races, but this exaggerates it very very much.

    If it is around the world where is the Scandinavian type? And what is the political blabla about white man being featured too much? The film industry is a white invention, so, of course white men are shown more in white countries... duh...but there is Bollywood if someone is interested otherwise or Nollywood. Nobody is at disadvantage.
