Last week, the Elysée unveiled the official presidential portrait for François. Within hours, our web-savvy friends across the pond came up with a number of timely parodies.
Dead Cat Helicopter and François First there’s a GIF of the the flying dead cat helicopter thing that was the stuff of nightmares last week.
Nadine Morano and François Nadine Morano takes to a 4X4, possibly to run over François. Morano is like a more aggressive, hawkish version of Condoleezza Rice in French politics.
Déjeuner sur l’herbe and François The grounds of the Elysée Palace are as good as any for this Manet painting.
La Redoute Naked Guy and François The online clothing company La Redoute had a great PR fail a couple months ago when an ad for kids shirts included a nudist strolling along in the background.
Footballer Sarkozy? and François Your guess is as good as mine.
The Kooples and François (and Valérie) The Kooples is clothing brand whose advertising campaign shows pictures of couples and lists how long they’ve been together. No one knows why this is relevant to selling clothes. An added dig here may be that Valérie and François got together before Ségolène was out of the picture.
Socialist Party Elephants and François The PS likes elephants.
Alien Invasion and François Men In Black called from 1997 and want their space ship prop back.
Zombie Apocalypse and François I think this one missed out on an opportunity to include some bath salts somewhere in their Zombie Apocalypse depiction.
