The Polish Tourism Council came up with a witty response to France’s xenophobic fear that “Polish plumbers” were stealing jobs from French workers. The Polish Plumber, portrayed by twenty-one-year-old model Piotr Adamski, assures the world he has no intention of leaving Poland except, that is, for a short trip to the Eiffel Tower where he’ll try to drum up tourism.
“He’s too lacquered, too handsome and too clean to be on a work site,” a real Polish plumber said of the model in the Times. “He looks like something out of an X-rated fantasy film about women who are waiting for the plumber to come.” Sure is. And for that, he is our crush of the week. Ada Calhoun
