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:

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!

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?!!
