Video Digest: March 14, 2008

Viral videos from Paris: Rosecrans Baldwin reports on differences in YouTube usage from the Champs-Elysees.

Office culture doesn’t differ much country to country. People send each other videos, and we watch those videos when we think no one’s looking. In France, the videos are sometimes a bit steamier than you’d expect from Jane in accounting, but more often they’re cute rather than hot. Here for your Friday diversion are the videos currently making the rounds of one office on the Champs-Élysées in Paris:
24 in Paris
Eye of the Kangaroo
Urban Touchdown
Food Court Musical
Who Needs a Movie?
Fainting Goats
No Idea About this One
Absolutely Not Safe for Work Unless You Work in France


Rosecrans Baldwin co-founded TMN with publisher Andrew Womack in 1999. He is the author of three books, including his latest novel The Last Kid Left (NPR’s Best Books of the Year).
