When a man with a large pot belly wears a shirt that is too tight causing his belly button to make a massive indent in the middle of his stomach resembling a crater on the moon. Generally this man believes that he is incredibly sexy when he is actually disgusting and will compensate by driving BMWs and talking highly of himself.
