Talking heads

Like to laugh? Check our Montreal’s new animation phenomenon Tete a Claque. The animated funnies are in thick joule, and I had to replay some of them several times only to realize that an unfamiliar word was actually “grilled cheese” with an accent. But they’re hilarious!

The photo above, for example, is from a faux commercial for a snow shovel with a built-in television, to revolutionize your experience of shoveling snow. The only problem? You can’t see the TV when there’s snow on the shovel. The solution? Only shovel during commercials.

    The têtes à claques have been really popular with francophones for some time. It’s only now that anglophones are becoming aware of them. Personally, those teeth and eyes creep me out but I guess that’s part of the fun. Now that the creator, Michel Beaudet, has made deals with Juste Pour Rire and Bell, it remains to be seen if the added pressure will have any effect. The Willi Waller potato peeler is a really good one. Even Premier Jean Charest jokingly said that all he wanted for Christmas was a Willi Waller!

    The Halloween episode is by far the best.
