Phoenix 1901 acoustic "Live in France"

Those darn adorable French boys of Phoenix released a new album lately called Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. It's not that inspired of a name, but the first few singles have been fun, so maybe their own catchiness got to their head and made them think they could have been hot shit back in the 1780's. One of the hot new tracks is "1901," which is relatively cute, but I was definitely suckered into this video. It presumably uses Mac Photo Booth's awful "green screen" function (which really barely functions at all) to drop a stream of the Eiffel Tower behind them. I am a sucker for a kind of "yeah, we know this looks awful, but that's the point!" aesthetic *coughhipstercough* and I love them playing with their own Frenchie identity. Here it is, with the original streaming below.
