Oh my gosh, I watched the video to the end and at the end, to see the proof of what they are singing about is just too much!! GREAT parody there, and I loved the wig the guy trying to be Art Garfunkel was wearing!

Arthur informative Blog. I will definitely check out these writers. The illustrations from the books shown on your blog are beautiful , I am sure the writings are just as wonderful. The French, or Canadians always do things with exceptional taste. Thank you for posting my friend.
