Stromae
'Fils de Joie'
8 May 2022 4 mins 04s

Belgium artist Stromae is back with this big budget promo which imagines a state funeral for a sex worker. Stromae, sporting a futuristic hairdo, owns the stage as he raps and sings his way through the song. The striking choreography takes centre stage, becoming less and less militaristic as the funeral progresses.

Line after line of military personnel march to the beat, the best being an all-female brigade who start blending in dance moves to great effect - especially when filmed overhead. The coffin being carried by dancers dressed in skimpy attire will certainly raise eyebrows and questions of taste but overall, the film unquestionably accomplishes the spectacle it set out to achieve.
