Phoenix taught HAIM how to speak French

    haim-and-phoenix

    This November, CoSigned sisters HAIM will open up for Phoenix during a brief European tour. As a means to bolster communication and break down language barriers, the Haim family got the French rockers to teach them a few must-know French phrases, and NME was thankfully there to capture it all.

    The linguistic lesson focused primarily on the absolute basics (“Where is my damn croissant?”, “Does this venue have showers?”), which are way more crucial than “I’m lost, can you help me find…?” or ”Help, I need an ambulance!” Based on Phoenix’s reactions, the sisters seemed to have some mad annunciation skills; that, or the boys are super nice and let HAIM just slaughter their native tongue. School House Rock this was not, but we did learn plenty, including that a fool is called a “quiche” and doing this with your hands doesn’t make you a more authentic French speaker. Le sigh.

    Regardez le replay ci-dessous. Et, les filles, bonne chance dans le pays des droits de l’homme.
