Encore Rémi GAILLARD! (“Ze Very Best Of”) Posted by on Jul 2, 2010 in Vocabulary

In the videos you have previously seen of le farceur (the prankster) Rémi GAILLARD posted two days ago, the Montpelliérain (name of the inhabitants of the beautiful southern city of Montpellier) displayed only two of his many talents cachés (hidden talents): Namely his ability to infiltrate major évènements sportifs, always undetected, as well as his prouesse (prowess) in le football… Following les Bleus‘s premature voyage back home from Johannesburg, many supporteurs have expressed their complete dismay as to why Rémi wasn’t tapped for Nicolas Anelka‘s position!

Today, you’ll discover some of his finest and funniest videos: Attention, c’est à mourir de rire ! –Watch out, you may die of laughter… On vous aura prévenu (You have been warned.)

1- “Rémi” Balboa (“Ze Eye of Ze Tiger”)!

After le football, le handball, and le culturisme (bodybuilding), vient le tour de la boxe (comes the turn of boxing), where Rémi incarnates the famous personnage (character) of Rocky Balboa! Whether it is in le supermarché (the supermarket), sur les autoroutes (on the highways), ou bien à la plage (or on the beach), everywhere is good for Rémi to perform his entrainement intensif (intense training.)

2- Rémi “Jason” Gaillard makes his own “DMCV”… The “Friday 13th” way (“Dieu Merci C’est le Vendredi 13!”):

In this video, Rémi throws the (Rocky Balboa) towel, so to speak, and instead heads towards the nearest hardware store in order to acquire -guess what?– une tronçonneuse (a chainsaw)! Needless to say, of course, that even the most courrageous of the gardes de sécurité (security guards) doesn’t feel particularly eager to argue with the masked client, “Rémi/Jason“, while he’s wielding high his special “home improvement” tool…

3- Le hockey sur glace (Ice Hockey):

Imagine that you’re peacefully waiting for your bus at some abribus (bus shelter), when tout à coup (all of a sudden)…

4- “Des Chiffres et des Lettres” (“Digits and Letters”):

Yet another famous French émission télé (TV-show) in which Rémi succeeded making a “cameo appearance” into. The idea of the game is to obtain the number généré aléatoirement (randomly generated), or at least a number close to it, using the other numbers drawn, which is in this case happens to be 395.

Here’s Remi’s genius mathematical “solution“:


… Sans commentaire ! (No comment!)

5- Les animaux font du shopping !
The advantage when you’re an animal, of course, is that you don’t have to pay at the register before you leave.

– D’abord, le pinguin (First, the auk):

– Then le chat, buying -I mean, “getting”- some poisson (fish):

– … and finally, the angry cochon (pig) who decided to come pay a surprise visit to le boucher (the butcher) to give him a piece of his mind (instead of his body, for a change.)

    Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
