Charlotte seems to meet Afanador in Venezia

Just watched the video of Heaven Can Wait, by Charlotte Gainsbourg (and Beck). She is a charming girl, with some je ne sais quoi...

The video is a mockery of the USA - Hispanic tension (and other minorities?), I think: a skate on hamburgers, Hispanic and Wasp sleeping in a one-room-house, boxing, etc. The best of all is the photography. I prefer Charlotte singing in French than in English, even knowing that she is half English. It's more a matter of language, I guess.

Some characters of the video reminded me of Ruven Afanador, and the last shot, obviously, of the Danish+Nordic Pavilion in Biennale di Venezia.
