    Default Yelle on MTV

    So, I turn on MTV 6 or 8 times a year when new Human Giant episodes come out. I was surprised to see 30 seconds of a Yelle video being shown over the credits of whatever entertainment abortion comes on before H.G.

    Maybe the FTC requires them to show 30 seconds of music per hour so they don't get fined for false advertising.

    Yeah, they do that during credits. When do Human Giant episodes come out? I've only seen it once, and it was great.

    It's on right now. Tuesday nights, I think.

    Not quite as good this year as last, but still good. I think I'm enjoying Whitest Kids U Know more, though. They've gotten better in their second season, and Human Giant is already falling back on stock characters.

    Though, I did really enjoy their "Kiditentiary" reality show, even if it was just a watered down version of "Kidcentration Kamp".

    As a French person, I'll just say : don't make anything of it. Forget about it. I know that what has been seen can't be unseen, but try your best.
    Seriously, Yelle is fun, and that's basically it. I still can't understand how she or Uffie could make it to Coachella. Good for them, though.

    I don't know why, but I really like Yelle. They are just really fun.

    I even put them on my Create A Festival Contest Poster. So it's really cool to see them playing Coachella.

    Yelle is old news, and is lots of fun for 30 seconds before MTV and america eats her alive. the TEPR remix of a cause des garcons is worth overexposure.
