Martin Solveig’s hit track “Hello” is so 2011. The music video however, is a timeless (literally) classic that requires revisiting in the buildup to this years next Grand Slam, the French Open. This battle at Roland Garros between Solveig and fellow French producer and DJ, Bob Sinclair, spans three generations of tennis, each artist playing balls as outrageous as their wardrobes. It has an over-the-top French agent, Solveig sporting 1970’s tennis gear (Sinclair in Agassi like neon 80’s garb), and cameos from Novak Djokovic and Gael Monfils. Forget gold chains, diamond crusted rims, and babes in bikini’s (well maybe not that last one), French people know how to make a music video cool. That’s right, tennis. 43 million views later, MTL is doing the video break down.
