Granted, chuckles: dude is possibly the most antimustachian in the world. (At first I thought vid must be a joke. But I researched Scott a bit annnnd... threw up a little in my mouth.)

Next up: who is the most antimustachian person MMMers know personally? Deets please. (Yes, gauntlet is thrown: I may have a ringer for this title....)

I'm pretty sure that my least favorite part of this little story is the fact that he got rich by providing a way for rich people to indulge in their various crazy expensive impulses as quickly as possible.  I mean, I guess I can't really fault him for finding a model that works, but paired with his own extreme spending it's just that much crazier to me >.<

Side note: what the hell is the point of a Loius Vitton soccer ball? Come on now...

It seems he thinks that things that are more expensive must automatically be better. Like he insists on spending way more than he has to for things. It made me think of a business venture I can probably make millions off of: Buy a bunch of cheap crap at Walmart, convince Scott Alexander that it's superb quality stuff worth thousands of dollars, and sell it to him. $$PROFIT$$

wow.

I'm going to differ a little here.  I actually felt a little sorry for him.  He sort of comes across as a sad, fragile person in that video.  ...almost as if a couple of things went wrong and he'd be crushed.  He's so wrapped up in how other people see him that I cannot imagine him as being overly happy.

True that, and he's so obsessed with his image that his computer wallpaper is himself without a shirt.

It may have been for lighting/effects, but when he was talking after getting into the SUV in Bulgaria, he had the visor mirror open on himself, too :)

I couldn't watch this all the way through.  People who live that way cause me to feel a bit sick to my stomach.  I can't say I have any idea of what drives one to live that way but I suppose if it's sustainable then go for it.  Perhaps someday more people with his kind of fortune will find happiness in using their wealth to invest in the community around them rather than the "playboy" lifestyle.

Heck, I couldn't be around the guy for ten minutes.  I was cringing when he was standing next to the fridge WITH THE DOOR OPEN while he explained the wonders of his youth drugs.

Also, that argument that we have heard on occasion on how we might help bring down our economy by being frugal/mustachian can surely be thrown out when you watch this guy's spending.  How many of use would it take to make up how much he spends?!

Wow, yeah, he was revolting.

Such a poser, and such an imitator.  "Look at all the diamonds on my watch; it's better than the one J-Lo had made!"  "I want to copy Will Smith's purple suit."  Ugh!  Just not creative at all.

Something tells me he is leveraged to the hilt and will go down in a spectacularly bright but very brief ball of flames.

He is now on the record as the first man with a British accent who utterly repelled me.

I couldn't even finish the video. I imagine he is wildly unhappy.

I might be impressed, if I knew who either of those people were :-)

Wow, this video was sad.

I agree that he seems very insecure. I can't imagine letting someone film me shopping for such ridiculous things. I would be mortified if anyone saw me acting like that.

He bought a town so that he could rename it Alexander.  Ha!  Sucka!  There's a city in New Jersey with my last name as its name and I paid nothing for that.  ;)
