And now, a moment with the elite group of dudes that have become Abercrombie's top-tier "greeters." Buzzfeed points us to the brand's little-known "Life as a Greeter" video series, in which we given some insight into the makings of this band of shirtless hotties.
Some things we learned: the "interview" process involves a series of one-armed push-ups. Also, the perils of the job include being possibly hit in the face by a branch on their special open-top buses. And apparently, if you aspire to be a top greeter, it helps to be a twin. Anyway, there are a lot of abs involved and it's lunch time, so go watch it after the jump.
