Continuing with the posts about Evariste’s television appearances, this one is from 05/03/67 – Nuit des élections (dir Raoul Sangla), broadcast on the 1ère chaîne.
Evariste was interviewed by Georges de Caunes alongside superstar Sylvie Vartan:
To keep the “Mocker” hairdo in place, Evariste wore a hairgrip!
The song on this show was Dans la lune, performed alongside a horde of adoring women:
Dans la lune, dans la lune, Je caresse tes cheveux blonds
Even though according to his lyrics he was dreaming of a lady with blonde hair, Evariste ends up walking off to “repopulate the world” with a brunette!
He might have been performing one of the gentler tracks, but he still had a tiger in his tank:
And, guess what? Serge Gainsbourg was next up on the show – standing on Evariste’s right (left as you watch the show). I’ve met Evariste and he was (at least) once in the same room as Serge Gainsbourg! Surely that means I’ve almost “met” Serge Gainsbourg?!!
