I find this video to be absolutely fascinating. Initially, I was like “9 minutes long? Fuck this shit!” but then the music began (“Serendipity” by Jack Wilson — a good whiskey-drinking song) and the faces of beautiful women began flashing by and I found myself lost in the moment. Strange how beauty and music can do that to you.
Now I don’t agree with all the choices and the placements, but that is what makes lists like this one so damn interesting. And the fact that it is ranked down from 100 turns the process into a sort of suspenseful timebomb where you feel like you will undergo a physical change with the reveal of #1. My heartrate palpably increased as I got closer to the big reveal.
Sure it is a little creepy that the guy, T.C. Candler, has been doing this for a long, long time (he started in 1990), and so he is likely an older gent, and you don’t forget that when Chloe Grace Moretz, who is only 15, pops up on the list (some others are probably underage too; I don’t recognize them all). Or the fact that he uses a photo of Don Draper, seated, for his Facebook profile pic. People who hide behind photos of handsome people typically have some major insecurities. But so what? Even if he turns out to be a weirdo or a secret kiddie toucher, he has a comprehensive knowledge of the world’s most beautiful women, and he puts out an interesting list.
I am already curious what beautiful new faces 2013 will bring.
