1. He’s protein-shake crazy
And kisses his guns at the gym. CRINGE ALERT.
2. He calls himself a LAD
Yea, you already know...
3. He goes for a Nando’s…
...all the damn time. Then feels the need to Instagram his half chicken and double chips with Peri Peri Salt and Perinaise just before he chows it down. Chill on the uploads please.
4. He shows-off on social media
New ride? New booty call? Yep, you'll know about it - they're always on top of your feed.
5. His bum is on show
May we suggest a measuring tape? A basic b*tch can never get their size right.
6. He has low-brow humour
Sharing Mrs Browns Boys videos on Facebook? The WORST British comedy ever made.
7. He keeps the sticker on his cap
This trend is the equivalent to keeping your tags on your clothes (to show people they’re authentic). So it’s a fifteen quid hat - well done.
8. He posts the sport results
That’s what BBC Sport's for mate.
9. He has ZERO penis anxiety
Men penis shame all the time - basic guys? Their man bits have first names!
10. He thinks he’s God’s gift
The type of men who march around like they’re made out of gold. Even more hilarious when you catch them doing a double-take in the mirror.
11. He goes on a boys holiday every summer…
… to either Magaluf, Ayia Napa, Zante, Kavos or Malia. Hmm at least there’s places for all these British douchebags to congregate, right?
12. He has ‘man tricks’
Snorting love-hearts and Refreshers, fitting his fist in his mouth and drinking pints from his biceps #LAME
13. He pulls a peace sign in photos
Nothing is 'cute' or 'fresh' about a grown man giving a peace sign. Nothing.
14. He loves fake boobs…
They drool at the sight of fake tits. (They also have porn-star images on their bedroom wall, desktop and mobile.)
15. He trash talks his exes
Harping on your exes and bad mouthing them is one word - immature.
16. He knows all about women
According to the basic guy, there are only two types of girls, fit or rough.
17. He downs dirty pints
He also resurges drinking rules on a lads night out. The penny drop? Give it up!
18. He thinks he's extremely funny
And rattles at his own jokes. Only problem is, he's the only one laughing...
19. He starts boy chants
When out, he’s always riling up the crowd unwarranted. HIS NAME IS RIO AND HE WATCHES FROM THE STAND!
20. He takes mirror selfies at the gym
0 out of 10 for attractiveness. 10 out of 10 for comical value. Cheers.
21. He wears a tie to the club
... but not to work. He's basic right?
22. He's worn a mankini
He did it on a stag do. It was hilarious. Apparently.
23. He takes selfies wearing nothing but a towel
Oh wow. Check out that post shower smoulder. *Yawn.
24. He shows off his sex moves in public
He ain't got no shame showing you his special bedroom move, in front of everyone.
25. He's dressed up as Top Gun for Halloween
Gets all the basic bitches excited. (Girls and boys.)
26. In some ways he reminds you of Mark Wright
And that's basic.
