Does anybody know the name of the song played on the baskit video with nick youngquest? It sounds a lot like bloc party. But I'm not sure.

Dear All, (and Nick Y if you ever come across this!)

I will stick my head out to make a bold statement which is: Nick Y is possibly one of the hottest and most good looking guys on earth.

Apart from his out-of-this-world body and handsome yet masculine face; Nick possesses something of a true rarity these days: integrity of character.

His open and laidback attitude make him a billion times more appealing than just his interesting looks alone. Cliche as it sounds, Nick is not only a triple threat, looks, charm AND good personality but a cool and genuine guy.

His amazingly warm yet sexy smile and twinkle in his eye; make him even more irresistible. Those attributes combined with a seemingly unawareness of how Godly he is, makes him the ultimate of ultimate male fantasies...This fantasy just happens to be magnified even further considering HE is actually real! Nick really is a true testament to what a real man should aspire to be. I would like to highlight that when I say 'aspire' I am especially referring to his attitude and character more than anything else such as his status or how physically gifted he is.

There are many amazingly looking guys with phenomenal bodies but the true package is one in a million...

This photo shoot shows a more mature Nick taking his first steps into what seems a coming of age male maturity into his manhood. His decision to go into modeling shows a willingness and openness to try new things instead of the standard Alpha male rugby attitude that may perhaps condemn such a decision/profession.

His support of the gay community and photo shoot with Gareth Thomas are a true testament to a guy willing to stand up for what he believes in when it would and could have been so easy for him to have abstained from it all.

Nick Y, you are an inspiration and a true role model for so many. Your charisma and looks only make you even more appealing and successful in being the vessel that able to convey positive examples and messages.

Keep it real and so looking forward to more future photo shoots, clothed or not-you continue to intrigue me both mind, body and soul...

A True Fan and Genuine Admirer
