Dieu fumeur de havanes.

So this is a middling to awful Serge track, but this video. OMG, as the kids say when they are discussing French pop from the late 70s/early 80s. Here we have Serge and Catherine Deneuve lip-synching while standing on a set that would be outdone by your average high school prom. The cross fades, Serge at max-creepiness, Deneuve looking like she’s never speaking to this freak again, and the announcer all add up to pure gold.

From the upcoming Serge Gainsbourg biopic, ‘Vie Heroique’.
