And then I discovered this:
The Yelle video is daffy enough, but this version really takes the cake. First of all, it's some weird French version of the Go-Gos, heavily influenced by Robert Palmer? And it's a live-action version of the video for Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing?"
In any case, the song is catchy, in a somewhat annoying way. I have a theory that Yelle is only hip right now because she's singing in French; I bet if we could understand what the hell she was saying, people wouldn't like her so much.
