An ode to Robert Johansson's luscious mustache

An ode to Robert Johansson's luscious mustache

The content you never knew you needed but have secretly always yearned for.

Norway's Robert Johansson became an international superstar in PyeongChang. No, not because of his prowess on the slopes. Not because of his incredible bronze-medal winning jumps on the normal and large hills. Or his gold in the team event. But because of his extremely well-groomed mustache.

Let's take the time to truly appreciate Norway's national treasure.
 
 
Moments after winning his first career Olympic medal, the topic of conversations was still Johansson's stache.
 
"I started it two years ago and it's been good for me," he told reporters. "I started getting compliments for it and just went with it.

"I started two years ago saving for a beard. After a while it got quite long so I decided to see if it was able to make a moustache, and it was, and after this, long story short, I was getting a bit of attention and thought it was fun, and then (it) kind of took off.

"I don't feel it in the air, maybe it's kind of (steering) me in the right direction, I don't know."

Yup, that's the good stuff. Keep it coming.

The curly moustache, no beard look is a true power move. Only the most daring can pull it off. Well done, sir.
