1. WATCH: "Niggas in Paris" Used in French Political Ad.

    FRENCH

    File under political moves you'll never seen in the U.S.A.: Presidential candidate François Hollande recently released a campaign video in his native France featuring "Niggas in Paris" as the commercial's musical backdrop. Now our President is Black, but it seems unlikely he would ever be able to get away with running ads with rap soundtracks — explicit versions, mind you — like ever. Vive le France!

  2. You might wanna peep...

    • Elliot Ness

      Sorry to disappoint, but this is not an official campaign ad. It's a group of young guys who filmed him for 2 days as he campaigned in the Paris suburbs.

      Ness: Pardon our French interpretation. The American media has hoodwinked us again. No, but seriously, thanks for the info.
