Alpha Male Vs. Beta Male

I commissioned Anchorbolt Studios out of Los Angeles to make a fun video showing the difference between alpha males and beta males (with a Bang promo at the end). Grab some popcorn for this three minute clip…

Now I’ll be the first to admit that the words alpha and beta have lost a lot of their original meaning, especially with recent discussion here on foreign women preferring betas. This video is meant to be an amusing comparison of a typical bar alpha and bar beta in America. Soon we’ll have to qualify the terms by saying American alpha, Polish beta, Baltic epsilon, Danish uber extreme beta, and so on.

As for the clip, I got a kick out of the alpha saying my lines. It’s cool to think there are thousands of mini-Rooshs running around, gaming and banging. I’m so proud.

Thanks goes out to the actors for participating in the clip and especially Giordany from Anchorbolt for making it.

Where girls like betas
Guest

The US dating culture is in disarray and basically I advise people to abandon ship(both genders). Where and how do you find girls?

After living in various places around the world I recommend almost giving up on American dating or at least the ideas that come out of America.

In other words, not only give up on dating girls here in the USA, but I am talking about the whole notion and the American attitude that you need to strive or be an Alpha or try hard to get a girl and keep her (even being a bad guy is striving).

Girls are everywhere and will be impressed by your natural value (how much you develop yourself) and not an inflated peacock or roasted.

Therefore, if guys spend half the time they do in the gym or trying to impress girls, as they did learning a language or travelling around the world, they would get a lot more chicks interested and maybe even fall in love.

Alphas often get lame girls who need you to entertain them.

Betas get girls who do not need to be entertained.

If you choose to be a beta, just make sure you do it in a culture that will appreciate you. I think Eastern Europe or Asia, or large parts of Latin America, and Africa come to mind…. ummm everywhere in the world, but Portlandia type feminist cities in North America I guess.

Props to Roosh for putting it out there. I think there was no problem with the material, but the actor’s delivery was off. It felt like they were reading lines instead of actually being that person.

While I get the gist of what this video is trying to convey…I found it awkward to watch as well. The main actor didn’t exude alpha in the scenes where he was playing the alpha. Alpha is as much about body language and delivery as it is about what you say and how you respond to shit tests. The acting really just killed it for me.

They aren’t all that hot.

The “alpha” portrayal was poor. Using this video as examples of lines, attitude, and body language is a fail.

Yeah, they guy did a better job portraying the beta than the alpha.
Still, the video rules! How much did it cost to make it in the U.S. – couldn’t you do it cheaper?
They actually shoot major Hollywood movies in Eastern Europe now – same quality, half price. Conan the Barbarian comes to mind… waiting for the Untouchables 2.

Good video. The alpha actor did mumble one line at 2:14 that I couldn’t make out. After being asked what he does, he says “I’m unemployed and -mumble, mumble- dad’s basement.” Did anyone make that out?

Awesome. I felt so bad for the beta guy, damn, we’ve all been there. Only thing I would change is at the end when the girl says, “Do you maybe want to…” rather than him asking for the number he says something like, “Let’s go.” and she smiles and takes his hand and they leave together to

BANG.

Right on though, this is excellent. I’d love to see more of these in the future.

I’ll say this for the beta: at least he was actually approaching, unlike so many guys.

The acting was terrible—made the “alpha” moves painful to watch.

But the upshot is unmistakeable: YOU are the prize, not the women.

Internalize that and it will infuse everything you say and do.

With all Due respect, that video clip was utter bullshit. Anyone who has ever done night game in the Continental United states knows that it is usually so bloody loud with music that you have to shout yourself hoarse to make yourself heard. And hot chicks never go to quiet bars. They always go to those noise havens. In that damn video the guy was speaking softly, there was no loud music, there were subtleties in tone and nuance. Good luck trying to do that shit in ear-drum shattering hellholes you people call a bar/nightclub

Even if it’s just a promo, there’s a market for this stuff to jump-start beginners and give them the “Aha!” moment so that they really begin to understand the difference of who they are and who they can become.

Don’t feel cheesy putting the ad there. If it gets 100k views, and you convert 1% hopefully you’ll have paid for the promo.

Everyone is a critic.

The video is great. All the people complaining that the alpha wasn’t alpha enough must have some cartoon version of how it ought to be. What were you guys expecting? The Twilight vampire? Some guy in a biker outfit?

Putting on some sort of fake outlandish bad-boy persona won’t work for any guy who isn’t already a legit badass.

They didn’t charge $5,000 for that ad, regardless of what’s on their website. LA is full of videographers and actors doing work on the cheap to get their names “out there.” Good job for using it to your advantage!

His take on the Beta male was good. The Alpha…I saw him speaking the words but no alpha thoughts behind them.

But it was ENTERTAINING which was the point.

“Criticizing the acting on a book promo web video… can’t say I expected that. I’ll hire Leonardo DiCaprio for the next one.”

it’s pretty simple. loads of us started out as betas, read this site, then immediately went out to the bar acting like alphas. speaking for myself, i was able to convincingly ‘act alpha’ pretty fast, and from what i gather most people are the same. therefore, it’s a little disappointing when a professional actor can’t pull off what all of us joe nobodies could, and it deprives of the kick we all get out of observing alpha behavior in media. it’s not a big deal, obviously, but i am surprised you are surprised.

Once again Roosh is ahead of the curve. I always wondered why PUAs didn’t produce videos to explain concepts. Btw Roosh, student film makers/actors would be a lot cheaper.

:laugh: it cracks me up when the beta retreats to his straw after every failure. so real to life.

complaints about acting chops aside, this is a great video, and a potentially groundbreaking series for illustrating game concepts in action and the subtle yet real differences between alpha and beta male behavior. it should really help clarify for those doubters how game manifests in real life action and how it can be learned and applied.

if there was a free, or cheap, version of this, i would commission videos like this as well.

I am not going to criticize the video, its your money and you can do whatever you want with it. But I would’ve love to see the acting of one of Uncle’s Roosh classics: “Can I use your bathroom?”. That line is a killer.

The main stream media has no clue about alpha vs beta. They see the sexless guy with a fancy job as alpha and a deadbeat unemployed thug who is neck deep in pussy is beta. Someone needs to explain it to them.

I don’t think either that it is so simple that you can just categorize cool guy as alpha and the nerd as beta. Didn’t like the video, was too….boring? American? ..but it was allright I guess…maybe I am just a foreigner and don’t get the coolness of the clip. The guy was ugly, the girls were ugly. sry aint no hater just an opinion.

This video is great for your target market, which is not these idiots claiming that the actor was horrible or that the girls are not hot enough. The only thing that you need to step up is the text at the very end. I don’t think the “notch count” wording is good for your target demographic (as they aren’t guys already reading your site) and the arrows and graphic are WAY less polished than the rest of the video. It’s just not congruent.

Good job, Roosh.

If there is ONE take-away from the video it’s NEVER buy the babe a drink.

I liked the snap:”Why don’t I just write you a check.”

—–

Save your dough for after they put out. Period.

You’re a long, long way from being a mounted squire swooping away the peasant farm girl — so throwing down a couple of bones is useless — counter-productive, even.

——-

The best come back for job queries: “I’m living off my money.”

It’s an answer that answers nothing. We ALL live off of money. It implies that you’ve got so much — maybe it’s OLD money.

It’s the response that everyone from a Kennedy to an unemployed soda jerk can legitimately use.

It’s a wise answer because you don’t want prospects wasting any time getting distracted about your wallet.

And it’s the perfect cover for everyone with a nerdish job that would take forever to explain to guys, let alone bimbos.

And it keeps things fuzzy.

The tougher it gets to REALLY figure you out — the more the babes do so.

In that sense, it’s like crossword puzzles. Time investment builds towards the end — the desire for closure drive the id nuts — so inordinate amounts of time are used to close out those last squares.

I always felt that most guys with natural game were alpha males, and some of the guys in the “Game” community were beta. I wouldn’t consider a guy like Mystery to be an Alpha but I would Tommy Lee…

Keep up with videos, maybe get your own VH1 show…

The acting isnt top notch but you knew that. The alpha needed a stronger voice and better posture. Then the audio in general could be better. But whatever. Well done. Make more.

Roosh, you always write top notch shit , you deserve something better than this to represent Bang and your writings . I feel like next time it should be a bit more focused on Inner game and game life trajectory type stuff because I could see where someone would just interpret this as “pickup lines” or some other bullshit that people often assume game is .

I mean, Bang is a hell of a lot more interesting than the video .

I just have to say that guy played the beta so perfectly. You could just feel the confused, desperate vibe he was giving off. It reminded me very harshly of my older days before I learned game. . .

It was pretty funny and relistical. Made me smile.

The male actor was much better as a beta then alfa – even as alfa he occupied too little space and voice was to meek.

Some of the girs however made real good acting, just like in real life. Women are completly differrent creatures from alfa viewpoint compared to beta.

The personoality test was a joke trough too obvously something that could be said about every girl. I would be afraid to sleep with a woman who would be surprised by this out of fear of being infected with stupidity.

This would be more realistic if one of the Geico cavemen played the part of Roosh as alpha.
