Is Blake Shelton one of the Sexiest Men Alive? Or is that just Pure BS?

In a new YouTube video, the country singer – who was featured in this year’s PEOPLE special issue – takes to the streets of New York to find out.

“Now that I have this new superpower, we’re gonna test it out on the ladies,” the 32-year-old tells the camera. “Let’s just see what kind of effect I have on people now.”

Alas, he goes completely unrecognized – even with a name tag hanging from his shirt pocket!

“This is really not working out like I thought,” he laments.

Luckily, he still has girlfriend Miranda Lambert.
