One guess which category this story falls under. Now, if you had to choose someone famous that you could lick, who would it be? Well, in the U.K. apparently actor Daniel Craig (that’s Bond, James Bond) is the top choice as the coolest. So cool, in fact, that to celebrate National Ice Cream Week, Del Monte Superfruit Smoothies has produced a frozen treat of the British actor with his bare, sculpted torso.
Really. Check out the promotional photo to the left. Mmmm. Sexy.
According to the London’s Daily Mail, the ice cream company (which, by the way merely licenses the Del Monte name) created the smoothie likeness after asking more than 1,000 women which male celebrity they would like to see on the end of a stick. And British women most wanted to lick Craig’s stick, though we won’t assume only those of the female gender would want to run their tongues over that icy cool bod.
Getting their fill of Craig’s head means less than 100 calories for each pop and it comes in blueberry, pomegranate and cranberry flavors.
And who else did those orally deprived Brits want to suck on? Jude Law came in second, followed by Hugh Grant Welshmen Steve Jones and Tom Jones took fourth and fifth places, while Scottish film star Ewan McGregor came in sixth.Three Davids – Cameron, Beckham and Tennant were seven, eight and nine, while the top ten was rounded out by silver fox Philip Schofield.
News to Chew has no idea who some of those names are, though we are impressed with singer Tom Jones’ fifth place showing, ahead of that wanker David Beckham. Apparently, it’s not unusual to be loved anyone.
Before someone here decides to nick this really stupid idea from the Brits, we suggest this to our American women: go to the local market’s freezer section, buy a box of Popsicle Big Sticks, and use your imagination. Because we’d hate to see what the results of an American version of the poll might be.
Just some news to chew on.
