Michel Farinet (born 11 November 1937) is a French artist of electronic music. He has co-produced songs with DJ Benny Benassi. Born in Picardy (France), Farinet has become a popular underground artist who publishes his songs on the Internet.

President Nicolas Sarkozy[edit]

On 23 February 2008, French president Nicolas Sarkozy visited the International Agricultural Show in Paris. It is assumed[by whom?] that Farinet was the subject of Sarkozy's insult "Casse-toi pov' con !" (Then get lost, you poor jerk![1]) after he rejected to shake Sarkozy's hand.

Although Farinet publicly claimed being wrongly accused,[2] Internet users pointed out a remarkable resemblance. Furthermore, the fact that having published a politically motivated book regarding Sarkozy prior to the incident[3] is supposed to make him suspicious as well.
