Sébastien Tellier

Discovered a bit of YouTube gold through a friend and had to share.
I'd never heard of Sébastien Tellier, but upon research I found he's a French singer-songwriter who did Eurovision in 2008 (a brave mistake perhaps as France only came 19th) and once collaborated with Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (the half of Daft Punk with the, er, interesting name). Guy-Manuel produced his third album, 'Sexuality'. Tellier went in a new direction and called it "intellectual R&B".

Sébastien is clearly an arse man (like many male frogs) which is reflected in the video for 'Look'. I like the audio but I like the visuals much more. One could say it simply consists of a woman shitting diamonds, but I promise it's much more tasteful than that.
