2 young French Canadians dancing in towels, what’s not to like? (video)

Two young French Canadians in towels perform a dance on a French variety show. Oh Canada!


They’re called “Les Beaux Frères,” which means “the handsome brothers” (it also means “the brothers-in-law if the two words are hyphenated, but they’re not – I suspect it might be a pun). And they most certainly are.

A reader sent me their website and their promo video – they appear to be modern-day clown-type acrobatic guys.  Kind of neat.  There’s a second video of them beneath the towels.

Okay, strike that.  There is no video of them “beneath the towels” (that I know of). But you can find a second of video of them lower down on this page after you watch the towel video :)

    Yeah, I guess you can’t make total generalities. My Finnish husband had a perfectly furry chest – not too much, not too little.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    So sorry.

  • Strepsi

    French Canadians are MUCH less furry than French French, because they have centuries-old native First Nations blood, mostly Iroquois (which also explains the straight black hair and sometimes almond-eyes). Quebecois guys are actually a lot cuter than French guys IMO.

    LOL @ ‘Male nudity frightens them into paroxysms of verbal diarrhea, fits of outrage, uncontrollable homophobia and complete and utter public derangement.”

  • I’m sure some are. But years of research has shown me that they’re not exactly Greeks in that department :)

  • Me either. Not furry enough.

  • jomicur

    Eccch! You just ruined my lunch.

    Most American audiences would not get it. Male nudity frightens them into paroxysms of verbal diarrhea, fits of outrage, uncontrollable homophobia and complete and utter public derangement. This is a particularly Francophone aesthetic. A modern day can-can if you will.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Really? Even Gérard Depardieu?

  • FLL

    They should do this for audiences in the United States. They would be a hit.

    What a pair of cuties!

  • jomicur

    Lovely way to start my day. Many thanks. I can just imagine the outrage from One Million Moms et al if this aired on American TV. Which makes it that much more entertaining.

  • They’re French (by origin). There is no wax, they’re like that ;)

  • Yes I’m aware of that, except that, as you note, brothers-in-law is Beaux-Frères with a hyphen. I checked last night before I published and there is no hyphen, which made me suspicious. Which makes me suspect it’s more of a pun.

  • Terry-in-Chelsea

    Hate to quibble, but your translation is wrong. ‘Beaux’ does mean beautiful or handsome, ‘frères’ does mean brothers, but ‘beaux-frères’ all together means ‘brothers-in-law’.

    Towel snap’n maybe; towel swapping nada.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    I agree with Becca. It’s a very clever act, but the guys don’t do anything for me. To make me happy, they need more years on them and less wax.

  • Oh, stop. That didn’t give you some chuckles?

  • Meh. Not my type.

  • So hot and funny!
