“Chicks dig me because I rarely wear underwear, and when I do, it’s usually something unusual.” – Bill Murray
When most guys get into the Game, one of the first things they usually learn about is the concept of “Cocky Funny.” The idea of cocky funny, coined by David Deangelo, is a type of banter or flirting that’s used in order to create attraction and is something that we can often observe in guys who are naturally good with women. It’s a refined mixture of subtle arrogance, wit, charm and sexual innuendo.
The problem that most average frustrated chumps have when first attempting a cocky funny attitude is that they come off more of a confrontational jerk than a playful flirtatious seducer. The trick to figuring out how it’s supposed to look is to learn by example. And, in my opinion, one of the best examples is Bill Murray.
With the exception of Carl Spackler, most of Murray’s characters are prime examples of the cocky funny mantra; one of my favorites being the above video of the Aunt Jemima Treatment from the movie Stripes.
Here’s another great example from Groundhog Day:
Notice how he’s not being a complete dick, yet is still able to convey that subtle arrogance in a flirtatious funny way, all while being upfront about his sexual intent. This is how it’s done.
By the way, for those that own the Stripes DVD, there’s a great deleted scene which shows a good example of Cocky Funny in the bedroom with a very hot and naked P.J. Soles (the girl in the Aunt Jemima Treatment video).
