Bonzour Bonzour

Description: 
Every Thursday when he was a student at the Villa Arson, Patrick Moya presented a TV show called Bonzour Bonzour. It was unrecorded and broadcast live from a studio towards an auditorium, from a camera to a black-and-white monitor. He never knew how many spectators were looking at his show.

He parodied the style of popular shows of the time, with games and guests. Because he had no work to present at the end of the year and was forbidden to continue using the video department, he left the Villa Arson to go to the beach, returning only to pose as a model, thus realizing his dream of becoming a creature...
