Background[edit]

The song was first rumoured when a twelve-second preview was published online on 1 July 2011.[1] Just ten days later, the French iTunes Store made the whole song available as a digital download.[2] However, its official release did not occur until 26 September 2011.[3]

The music video directed by Kinga Burza was released on 16 August 2011. The video shows a family dancing and singing along to the song individually, as well as clips of the family members arguing and behaving mischievously. The video features a well-known ensemble of French actors, including Fanny Ardant, Marie-Clotilde Ramos-Ibanez, Patrice Pujol and Axel Huet.
