Sarkozy party video spawns imitations

An all-singing and all-dancing video by the centre-right political party of President Nicolas Sarkozy has become the mocking buzz of the month on French-language websites.

The three-minute clip, in which several cabinet ministers and a former prime minister lip-synch and “dad dance” to a 1970s pop song, has spawned half a dozen instant parodies, including a rap version.

The video was made by the youth wing of President Sarkozy's party, the Union pour un Mouvement Populaire (UMP). Days before its launch the short film had become what the French call un tube, or a hit.
