Michael sez, "While on a brief visit to Paris last year, I made a silly stop-motion film-clip for my band The Leafs. It is silly because I am doing a silly dance - a style I like to call 'Reality Dancing' - through the streets of that lovely city. I tried to get some actors involved but when I showed them my Reality Dancing in a pub they averted their eyes and finished their drinks quickly and left. Not so my Parisian friends, who were right up for it. The whole shoot was technically illegal because my face was covered the whole time, and the anti-burqa laws don't allow that. Thanks to the police and the army officers who walked by for only looking grumpy but not locking me up: you guys rule."
