Michel Gondry Makes His Own “Taxi Driver”

A few years ago, I was at a party with some friends that Michel Gondry also happened to attend (okay, he was the honored guest). We started talking, and before I knew it, he was taking a bunch of photos with my friends and me. I guess he took a particular liking to me — or my boobs — because he pulled out his very own camera, grabbed the front of my shirt and took a shot of my tits. And that, my friends, is my Michel Gondry story. He is pretty much exactly as innocently pervy as the Gael Garcia Bernal character in “The Science of Sleep.” That said, that strange childlike weirdness permeates this “sweded” version of “Taxi Driver” he made. Instead of blood, Travis Bickle’s victims bleed crayons. Of course. [YouTube]
