After Hours

Les Baronets. C'est le freddy

Oh my. This is both the most annoying and the most endearing thing in the world. OK, so they can't sing and they really can't dance. This is kind of an important thing since it's a song about a dance - that they do very poorly. On top of that, their suits are about 10 sizes too small and their lead singer looks like a younger Nathan Lane. So that's what they've got going against them. On the other hand, their enthusiasm really won me over. After watching this, I realized that doing the freddy wasn't about being good at it or looking non-foolish; it was more about doing it and not caring - kind of like peeing on the sidewalk. This is really a lovely artifact from the French version of the sixties.
