Phoenix Gives You a Drone Tour of Versailles in Their New Video

By Adam Clark Estes on at

No trip to France is complete without seeing the grand gardens and spectacular palace at Versailles, the place that epitomises the excess of 18th century France. Who better to lead the tour than everybody's favourite 21st century French band, Phoenix. Plus also, naturally, drones.

Phoenix's Entertainment is the latest Take Away Show produced by La Blogotheque. This French music blog has become famous for following famous bands around Paris with a handheld camera as they sing songs in the street. But La Blogotheque is employing a new tack with the Phoenix video, taking to the air with a drone to capture not only the band but also the sprawling grounds at Versailles. While it's not their most famous song, "Entertainment" provides a lighthearted soundtrack to the tour with a cool electro-rock underpinning that's straight out of Marie Antoinette. The end result? C'est magnifique. [Fubiz]
