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. In rare occasions he will also wear "titty shirts" to accentuate his figure and perpetually hard nipples.
