No Stress – Justice Parody!

I am quite jaded when it comes to parody music videos – but this one is as good as it gets. Unless you’ve been living under a rock you have already seen the sensational video for Justice’s latest single, Stress (I posted about it awhile ago). The hoodlums’ violence in the video was controversial to some but it was exactly the type of hardcore attitude that begged to be parodied. Without further ado I present to you, Justesse – No Stress directed by Thomas Vandenberghe (according to Antville and Youtube) and produced by Charles Villeneuve:

The firecracker part is hilarious!

And if you never saw the original video Stress:

    I just finish reading an essay by Andrew Hussey in Granta about Paris’ troubled banlieue. http://www.granta.com/Online-Only/The-Paris-Intifada

    The disconnect between the city and these suburbs/ghettos seems to be widening, and quite hopeless. Interesting read and it gives you a bit of understanding why these “hardcore” behaviors are so prominent. I know conservative France is pissed about this video as it again shows the country has some shit to sort out. I think it’s good for Justice to bring this subject out, and have people aware of it.

  • the link to the article is broken (on the actual site) but i remember seeing these photos or ones like them. yea im not so sure the Justice video is really a positive thing in terms of bringing light to it though – it kinda glorifies it – people watch it and just think it’s a cool video, and if the intent was to enlighten people about this widening gap i don’t think it’s successful.

    You are right the video itself is not “solving” the problem, but it’s at least creating dialogues between people. Just like here.
