VIDEO: Sébastien Tellier – Cochon Ville (NSFW)

The many-worlds theory (created by Hugh Everett III, father of Eels genius Mark Everett) states that every possible outcome from every possible event takes place simultaneously, creating new universes in which those possible outcomes came true. It follows then, that in some parallel universe, Sébastien Tellier is not a cool man. He lives above a chip shop, alternating his time between upkeep of his extensive bus ticket collection and working up the courage to look people in the eyes when he speaks to them. Cheerfully,that is not the universe we live in, ol’ Tellier is, as always, the coolest fucker to ever grace the face of the planet. This is a man who survived the Eurovision Song Contest in style and then didn’t even blink an eye when Joaquin Phoenix went around being him for a couple of years. Expecting anything but the height of wonderful from him is time spent poorly, as is proven by Cochon Ville, the first cut from his 5th studio album My God is Blue. It’s a delirious slice of Parisian space-funk, with a hilariously brilliant video involving extensive nudity, Klu Klux Klan members and roller blades. It’s rather NSFW, I might add, so, you know, be careful or something.
