This Christmas, and thanks to my sister's French family, I've discovered the viral video series of Remi Gaillard, a very funny comedian, whose clips on YouTube are viewed million times.
As a sample, see Remi Gaillard's real-life version of the classic Nintendo video game "Mario Kart".
He drives a go-kart at high speed through the streets and stores of Paris.
Remi Gaillard started doing pranks after losing his job as a shoe salesman. Now he is a French celebrity: he has appeared on several TV shows, sport events, and political rallies, where he got in trouble with security employees.
See here all Remi Gaillard's videos thematically categorized.
Happy New Year!
