Fun Video Player allows play very funny videos: Rémi Gaillard and Just For Laughs Gags.
Rémi Gaillard is a French humorist who uploads videos on YouTube. After losing his job at a shoe store, Rémi began to use his free time to have fun and run pranks on the public. Gaillard gained attention in the French media after performing a series of well-documented pranks, including an appearance disguised as a Lorient football player in the 2002 Coupe de France final match, during which he took part in the winners' celebrations and was greeted by the then president of the French Republic, Jacques Chirac. He plays football and has posted videos showing his skills, including one with Brazilian legend Ronaldo. Gaillard has appeared in several sport events, TV game shows and political rallies. Rémi Gaillard became famous for his videos where he displays an "outrageous" style of humour, challenging public norms. Recurring themes include dressing up as and interpreting the behaviour of various animals in public, racing unsuspecting car-drivers whilst dressed up as Mario à la Mario Kart, and numerous provocative interactions with parking enforcement officers and the police. Gaillard's satirical motto is "C'est en faisant n'importe quoi qu'on devient n'importe qui". The exact meaning is difficult to translate into English, as it plays on a classic French proverb "C'est en forgeant qu'on devient forgeron". Literally translated the proverb reads "It's by forging that one becomes a blacksmith," or more figuratively, "Practice makes perfect". In Gaillard's jeu de mots "n'importe quoi/qui" can read "no-matter what/who", or more simply "anything/anyone", such that the phrase would read It's by doing anything that one becomes anyone. However "n'importe quoi/qui" can also be used to mean "a stupid thing/person". The dual meaning lends itself towards challenging the proverb, as is Gaillard's style.
