French pop artist Yelle and her band have certainly made an impression in the U.S., what with sugary-pop hits like "Ce Jeu" and accompanying video (see above) featuring the lead singer and band namesake donning a strange variety of attire, from a red- and white-striped bodysuit to possibly the strangest pair of sunglasses ever made.
The visuals practically scream it: "Don't take me seriously!"
But, really, if you didn't already speak French, you probably weren't going to do so anyways.

Luckily Yelle isn't a super-serious band, as evidenced by their latest song release, "Safari Disco Club," a light-hearted pop tune that may or may not be about dancing with giraffes, far as we can tell.
