The sequence where Elliott

“The sequence where Elliott is behind the fence was a hidden homage to this Gainsbourg video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do2lAQLXPTk

It was challenging getting the label to sign off on the idea of the video being Elliott just walking around. I told them there is an incredible video where Serge is just standing behind a fence and it’s riveting because of the song and Serge Gainsbourg’s charisma. But back then you couldn’t send a link. I only had a bootleg VHS of it. They just had to take your word for it. I realize now if HAD shown them this video of dour Serge sniffling in the cold behind a dirty fence they probably would have fired me on the spot.”
