“C'est en faisant n'importe quoi qu'on devient n'importe qui.”
Yeah, we didn’t know what it meant either. The short phrase, which roughly translates to “it’s by doing whatever, that one becomes whoever,” recently went global.
French prankster Remi Gaillard just released a new video that spans dozens of cities. The cheery five-minutes called “Around the World” is, well, literal. Tons of people across the globe danced around in shirts displaying the elusive phrase.
Gaillard is no newb to YouTube. In fact, he’s got nearly 2 million subscribers to his channel with over 1 billion (yes, billion) views. He’s posted videos of himself doing wonky stuff — tossing on animal costumes and mimicking their behavior in public, playing real life Mario Kart, and competing against famous athletes.
While Gaillard’s no stranger to riling up law enforcement, the dancing "T" video is much tamer and totally legal (we think). And let’s make something clear: This is no Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants — mostly because there’s a lot more dancing (and thankfully, a lot less sobbing about teenage boys). We can’t help but love the awkward jigs, and the dude that dances like a kangaroo in Sydney.
Plus, any video featuring Daft Punk’s “Around the World” is a winner in our book.
