Guffaws in British press over UMP campaign song

INTERNATIONAL PRESS REVIEW: This morning’s The Independent reports on the UMP’s much-ridiculed campaign song, “Changer le monde”.

The idea was to give the party a fresher, more dynamic image ahead of regional elections in March, but the UMP Party’s cover of 1970s hit “Changer le Monde” has drawn widespread ridicule.

The video features French ministers jiving along to the music with appalling lip-syncing added in for good measure. The Independent says even former ministers in the ruling UMP party have poured scorn on this exercise in naff-ness. Luc Ferry said it made him “want to vomit” while Yves Jego remarked, “Honestly, I think it was a mistake.” Here’s the clip so you can judge for yourselves!
