New video for France

by Richard West-Soley 119 views

Hot on the heels of Sweden, whose representatives The Ark have been working on a brand new clip, France's Les fatals picards have released a new video for their Eurovision entry L'amour à la française.

The new video contains all the tongue-in-cheek humour that the public have come to expect from Les fatals picards, and is shot partly in a traditional theatre, and partlyon location across a range of famous Parisien landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower,l'Arc de Triompheand the Moulin Rouge.

Too late for previews?
The video has already been given some airtime on French TV, for example, appearing on the late night talk show On n'est pas couché (We haven't gone to bed) this week, and it is expected that the clip will be aired between commercial breaks as was the case in 2006. However, the video may be too late to include in many countries' preview shows, which will most likely show the original video containing excerpts from the live performance at the French final. This can be viewed at
