Stromae - Papaoutai

The video shows a young boy trying to interact with his unresponsive father (played by Stromae) who sits motionless, his expression and body resembling that of a mannequin, while outside other fathers and sons dance together. In the end the son joins Stromae on the sofa, assuming a rigid, lifeless position identical to his father’s. It refers to absence of the father of Stromae, who was killed in the 1994 Rwandan Genocide.

*Just a correction. Stromae said on this interview (at 6:25) that only the 1st verse of the song is a reference to his relationship with his father. The rest of the song and the video is really about paternity and what a father should or shouldn’t be.

A very good way of going about explaining this issue. It’s good to see something positive come from Tumblr.

The aroma of crushed guava leaves, the taste of salted clay, dancing under stars that I can almost touch and a moon that dances along, home.
