Le Triplets de Belleville - Coolest YouTube Video

I'm not too good at French but I believe the title above can loosely be interpreted as "The Triplets of Belleville". It's probably best to ask your French teacher though. You don't want to quote me on that and months later come back whining because everyone has been saying you're stupid.

Anyways, has anyone ever seen this? This is one of the weirdest videos. I love it. I especially love the tiny creatures and their dance moves. Especially the move where you lean forward, swinging your arms and kicking your legs back. Is there even a name for that? I've been doing that move for years and I'm a bit embarrassed that I don't even know what it's called.

You know... I enjoyed that, and I don't know why. I watched the entire 3 minutes and 18 seconds, smiled and bounced a bit. I liked the little dancing people too, and I liked the animated old woman at the table playing her jowly cheeks. Thanks guy-above-average-height. I might even show my sons this one!

Cool!

It's pretty crazy huh? I saw it a few years ago when it was being touted for an Oscar or some such. Freaky good.

The animation stuff is from the film a few years back of the same name, but the rest of it is a music video from Mathieu Chedid (M).

Weird dude

Someone gave us a copy of that movie years ago, when my son was still pretty small, but he loved it. We watched it together, many times.

Isn't that move called "the running man"? I don't pretend to really know, but that could be some animation variation of that dance move.

LYDIA said...

Odd video, but I enjoyed it. The singer had some really amazing moves! Hope you had a great weekend Zibbs.

Gage said...

i've never watched it, but apparently we show it to our students all the time...

Fancy Schmancy said...

If I recall correctly from my tap days, they are called reverse or backward scissor kicks. I could be wrong. I'm bummed I had to watch without sound at work...
