Sunday Video: French Disko

I love Stereolab, but I laugh every time I watch this video.

Why?

The people dancing in the audience.


It is like they scooped up every young adult subcultural stereotype from the early 1990's, threw them in an audience with cameras and told (or paid) them to dance.

And I am especially amused by the idea that while the band was performing, they were getting to see how silly some of those people looked out in front of the stage unfiltered. I would have loved to have heard the conversation backstage after that.

Especially about this dude:

Seriously man, what were you thinking? I know it isn't nice to mock the fashion choices of the past, but come on. I can't think of any time this would be a hip look.

Yeah, it's a bad sign when I'm thinking of the band as "the normally-dressed ones."

Is that guy wearing a giant dollar bill on his groin? Why?

That's just silly.

Where would he keep his mobile phone?!

malora: It looks almost like a demi-skirt.

Lee: Why would he need a phone? Would you call someone who shows up to be on television dressed like that?
