Alice Cooper a Paris (more commonly known as Alice in Paris[1]) is a French television special starring shock-rocker Alice Cooper.

A series of music videos of songs from his then-current album Special Forces with a few songs from Flush the Fashion and some older hits mixed in, several songs were re-recorded for the special[2] ("Only Women Bleed", "I'm Eighteen", "Billion Dollar Babies", "School's Out") and have shown up as B-sides of singles with crowd noises mixed in to give the illusion that they were live recordings.[2] The songs are performed in English, but one brief split-screen sketch features French dialogue as radio disc jockey Vincent Furnier (Cooper's real name) interviews Alice.

There has never been an official release and while not officially broadcast outside of France,[3] copies have been circulating amongst Alice Cooper fans for decades. Some copies are missing opening credits, leading fans to refer to it under a variety of titles, including Alice in Paris, The Paris Special and 16 Tracks.[1]
