Hunky Belgian superstar Stromae has an intriguing video that’s part Gladiator part Maze Runner and part Game of Thrones opening. It’s definitely one of the best videos I’ve seen all year. The lyric translations are a little clunky, but apparently “ta fête” can be translated as both “your party” and “we’re going to hit you,” so the whole song is a pun about… I don’t know… being trapped in a society that’s out to get you. Or something like that. Just go with it.
That Stromae, though, is pretty charismatic, isn’t he? I love the outfit, I love the video, and I love the song. He made his US debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night. You can watch it here.
