Peter Davis' Status Update: Loving Lou
Diego Garcia, the lead singer of the band Elefant, was so taken by meeting model/actress/Jane Birkin-offspring Lou Doillon that he wrote a song about her. Garcia first ran into Doillon at Beatrice Inn, then saw her again in the garden of the Bowery Hotel where she was strumming a guitar. He made up the song "Lou" right there. In the Lou video, Garcia plays a rowdy drinking game where you have to swig every time he sings "Lou," which will leave you sloshed in 3 minutes and 15 seconds. "It was all very organic," Garcia tells me. "The idea for the video came after a few bottles of wine."
