Popular Belgian musician Stromae (aka Paul Van Haver) has a released a new video for his song “Carmen” which turns Twitter into a terrifying monster.

“Those fake smiles cut like a #. Watch yourself out there,” he says in the song. “Network friends and followers? No, no you’re just popular.”

It’s a reworking of “Habanera” from the opera Carmen, in which love is compared to a bird. He took that idea and made a version about Twitter.

The song is a commentary on how social media dominates our lives, and ironically he is promoting the new video on an Instagram account which he started a few weeks ago. It was directed by Sylvain Chomet, who worked on both “Triplets of Belleville” and “The Illusionist.”

“I’m not so radical about Twitter, but I think it’s sometimes dangerous if you think that Twitter is real life,” he told Time Out in an interview last year.

Stromae has a huge following in Europe and he is also popular with some world leaders, as both Nicolas Sarkozy and Barack Obama apparently own copies of one of his albums.

Here’s another of his hits called “Formidable,” which you may be familiar with. In the video, he walks around the streets of Brussels pretending to be drunk.

Tumblr Users Analyze "The Incredibles" To Oblivion

Talk about an Incredible discourse. We can always count on the wandering minds of Tumblr to put their heads together, and churn out some real gems. This particular roundtable discussion centers on the infamous film, "The Incredibles." Maybe one of the best superhero movies of all time. So many easter eggs and intricate patterns throughout the film. The only question is how much of what's being discussed was intentional on the part of the filmmakers vs. pure coincidence? 

Tumblr users go all in on a conversation about The Incredibles | silverhawk honestly tho scene incredibles where mr. incredible sees names all old super heroes used be his friends he knew Back Day and every one them has been killed by syndrome is such chilling scene so many reasons like one, everyone he knew is dead at this point and has been killed on same island he's at now and two, its heartbreaking bc means almost every hero wanted try out being hero again despite laws against and wanted try
