Yesterday, I was replacing some window decorations with giant, red, glittering hearts, when a Serge Gaisbourg song started playing. –video below.
The video features Serge driving a Rolls Royce and Jane Birkin getting hit by it while riding a bicycle. This song and video are the first in a series that go on to tell the love story between a middle-aged man and a much younger, Lolita-esque girl.
In fact, Serge’s video and song demonstrate one thing really well (no, not an illicit affair): Strange Love. Just go with it…
Why else would we, at Spitfire Girl, have a donkey head on the body of a man, surrounded by hearts in our front window??
Think about it… some of the best romances of all time are really, really strange.
Love is elusive, twisted, and, above all….drumroll…. love is weird.
Don’t try and pretend that it’s not, just look at the things we have in the store especially for Valentine’s Day!
