Sebastien Tellier is awesome

so I'm pretty surprised I haven't written about him before: Sebastien Tellier is a hilarious Frenchman who makes awesome 80s style electronic music with great videos. He kind of looks like a caveman or Jesus and dresses like Miami Vice.

Here's "Divine," which, shockingly, was France's entry into the Eurovision contest in 2008. Not shockingly, it didn't win, because it's actually good.
