After Hours

Les Excentriques. Aide-moi chérie

From beginning to end, there isn't a single thing about this clip that isn't retarded: the tune, the band, the surly-looking background dancers, the screaming audience and that "150" in the foreground. Especially the "150." I have no idea what it means, but it, too, is retarded. And yes, you're hearing correctly, that's "Help Me, Rhonda" by the Beach Boys translated into French and given to these mooks to perform for a gullible public. Sorry about the occasionally weird audio/video, but it fits in nicely with the whole surreal atmosphere. If you get all the way to the end of the tune, you're a stronger person than I am. I've tried about five times and can barely get past minute one. Still, it's initially really amusing until you realize that the entire song is exactly like that. That's when the experience turns into agony.
