A PIZZA TEEN! Douche Bag Double-Feature Starring Jean-Michel Jarre

I wasn't content merely relegating these videos to the comments of Stexe's Fairlight post. I'm a fan of his albums Oxygene, Equinoxe, and Zoolook, but Jean-Michel Jarre's videos and promotional films are some of the grossest examples of so-pretentious-I-feel-the-need-to-kick-him-in-the-balls visuals ever generated. In both of the videos below, Jarre has all of the charm of The Shining's Danny Torrance while in his terror-induced emotional coma. A comment on youtube compared the first video to a shampoo advertisement, and I happen to agree. If you mute the sound and just concentrate of the visuals, the laugh factor goes WAY up. No one twirls his own knob like Jean-Michel, har dee har har. BONUS! Here he is in 1990 playing the "laserharp" for the amusement of the all-powerful Master Control Program, live from the top deck of Zark's command ship. This unusual musical device is fueled by pure, unchecked ego.

Sheesh, what a douche bag... a somewhat futuristic sounding douche-bag.

The first video is one of the funniest things.
