Iam short, yellow and cuddly and I spawned a legion of fans in love with my nonchalance and exceedingly flat head. My head-banging, finger-tapping style swiftly became the brightest star in ad-land after my debut in 1999 alongside my rather melancholic pal Angel. I was promoting Levi’s Sta-Prest jeans in a spot devised by my friend Quentin Dupieux, the French Partisan film director, DJ and electro artist who is also known as Mr Oizo. With the nation’s hearts won over, the track that accompanied the ad, topped charts across Europe. The campaign began as a one-off burst of three ads, but public response was so overwhelming that Levi’s brought me and Angel back for a six-week encore in August and September that year that saw us dodging the police and getting squashed by a giant hot dog.

The History Of Flat Eric

Usually on Sunday, I play music videos for you all to enjoy but this week I thought we would have a change. Some of our more recent followers may not even know who I am and why I was employed by Davidd to DJ our musical Sundays. You see I was once a pop star, even if only for a short time. I was created Quentin Dupieux better known under his stage name of Mr Oizo. I was based on a dog-like puppet called Stéphane that was similar, but with ears and the hands were fixed. Stéphane appeared in some short films by Mr Oizo (including a music video for the track M-Seq), and had a small cult following in the United Kingdom and France. In March 1999, Levi’s decided to build a television commercial campaign around me, which was directed by Oizo.
