The unusual video for Tais Toi Mon Coeur, by Dionysos, featuring Olivia Ruiz.

Some backstory. Dionysos, led by Mathias Malzeau, has a history of interesting video productions, and the story behind "La Mecanique du Coeur" is being adapted by Luc Besson.

oh shit, it's in some foreign language...

Fear not, wilty flower types of lacking the translations (of which I am one!): there's a translated, subtitled version.

(Should have put that in the FPP.)

Not that it isn't pretty engaging regardless of the lyrics.

Yes. It's called allegory.

That was great, thanks.
On the YouTube page there are videos of other songs from the album. Among them, an amusing song about the word cunnilingus.

I've had the pleasure of seeing and hearing their live act, and it seriously, seriously rocks. The lead singer looks like John McEnroe and acts like the Keef on a very good day.

The video for "Neige" is really similar, and I personally like it more than much of "La Mécanique du Coeur" (I think Malzieu has let too much of his personal life into his professional one, namely putting his girlfriend Olivia Ruiz on so many tracks on that album...I like her on her own, but I preferred Babet's voice about a thousand times over considering the vibe that Dionysos has (check out the albums "Western sous la neige" and "Monsters in Love", the latter being their apogee, in my opinion).

This song isn't about the word cunnilingus. It is about having a pet hamster NAMED Cunnilingus. An important distinction.
