I don't know if you know

what it is like to want to be someone else.

To not want to look like you look.

To hate your own face

and to go completely unnoticed.

I have always wanted to be

someone else.

I have never felt comfortable

the way I am.

All I want is to be better than myself,

to become less ordinary

and to find some purpose in this world.

It is easier to see things in others,

to see things you admire

and then try and become that.

To own a different face.

To dance a different dance

and... sing a different song.

It is out there waiting for us,

inviting us to change.

It is time to become who we're not,

to change our face

and become who we want to be.

I think the world is a better place that way.

Bam, bam.


If you like it, you can put money here!

You see?

You look good, my friend.

Good, strong skin. Beautiful.

Thank you. Thank you.

- Michael, you still like Paris?

- Mm, not really. It's too hot.

The heat is not good for the dancing.

It ruins my makeup, but anyway...

Trs chaud, trs chaud, oui.

These plants. Poor plants.


Want a coffee? Expresso?

You know I don't drink coffee.

C'est vrai.

But you look sad, no?

No, no, I'm OK, I'm OK.

I think you need more friends, more people.

Well, I don't speak French

and I know no one here.

You know me.

You should come here more.

Yeah, but you forgot about me, Renard.

Mmm,jamais, jamais, jamais.

I don't forget.

I tell everybody I've got the best

Michael Jackson, the very best Michael.

And I got you a job.

I've got you a good job.

Nice money, easy.

- Go to the old people's home.

- Oh, yeah, yeah.

Dance for them again. They love you.

Give them a nice day,

et cetera, et cetera.

OK, that's good news.

You see, I don't forget you.

- You need money?

- No, no, I'm fine.

You need money.

No, I'm fine, Renard. I'm...

Seriously, Renard, I'm fine, rea...

You need money.


Thank you.

I'm gonna go. Thank you.

Come and see me. I'll take you out.

We'll go to a place where they have

this good steak, green sauce. You'll like it.

- OK.

- And I'll introduce you to a French woman.

Nice woman, a strip-teaseuse.

- What?

- Mmm, a stripper,

but with a great, beautiful mind.



Bam! Bam!

# Ooh, that pussy gets damp

# Pump that, pump that,

pump that, pump that,

# Pump that, pump that thing

# Ass-shakin' competition champ

# Ooh, that pussy gets damp

# Pump, pump, pump that,

pump that, pump that, pump that ass

# Make it till the bells start ringing...


Test, test.

- Bonjour, bonjour, mes amis.

- Bonjour.


I just wanna tell you that

it's great to be here again with you guys.

With everything going on in this world, it's

good to know there's a place you can come

and get away from it all,

so thank you for having me.

And now I'm gonna need your help.

Are you with me? Yeah?

OK, so, please come on,

everyone, everyone...

Tapez les mains avec moi! Oui?

There you go. Come on.

On y va!
