It’s important to get the throaty r just right when singing Piaf, so obviously Viktor Dmitrievitch Huliganov would not be the consummate performer he is without gargling a bit and doing some warm-up exercises before embarking on this French classic, extolling the virtues of a life in pink.
Here we have for the first time the fourth “persona” on the channel, after Viktor Huliganov, Thomas P. Jameson III and Peter Paczek. I didn’t do much with this character, but he is based a bit on an old French teacher of mine from school days – even some of the gags are from that guy, and I liked that teacher a great deal. I think he appears only twice, but he can always re-appear in the future. One day I’d like to do more with Pierre Delauney.
And, for those of you who are wondering where the pun is – the pun is in Polish. Pierre Delauney sounds like “pierdolony”.
