Doping Scandal goes to the Beach

EPO, te quiero, grace à toi je serai numéro uno. EPO, te quiero, grace à toi j’aurai le plus beau des maillots… La Plage

I love this video. It’s in French, sung with a Spanish accent and parodies apparently some old soap opera type song shows that were broadcast in France in the 50s with Dario Moreno or Luis Mariano, famous for his role in “Le Chanteur de Mexico” (Mexico’s singer). . The obvious target is today’s bike racing cult of blood doping. It was released a few weeks before the start of Le Tour de France … now bathed in more scandal than it’s seen for years.

Unfortunately on Utube some people who speak Spanish and not French are taking umbrage, as they don’t realize it’s a parody of doping, not Mexico … ah well. Can’t please all of the people all of the time. This same group made another funny spoof video when Zinadine Zidane was red carded out of the world cup for the head butting incident.

Lyrics in English (no guarantees!)

Hi, dom Pedro
Si ?
What is your secret for being so fast ?
You would really like to know, wouldn’t you ?
It is an “especial” potion.
Let me tell you about it ….

1,2,3
EPO te quiero (EPO I love you)
Thanks to you , I’ll be “numero uno” (number 1)
EPO te quiero
Thanks to you, I’ll have the most beautiful of the jerseys.

On the roads of France,
I take advantage of the beautiful day.
I musn’t make too much effort
If I want to win the Tour.
I ride along on my bicycle
Without effort or complexity.
Far ahead of the peloton,
I’m humming this song.

EPO te quiero
Thanks to you , I’ll be “numero uno”
EPO te quiero
Thanks to you, I’m going faster than  ? (a tornado or Don Lado).

When I have a little pump strike (I feel drained)
On my bike
I stop beside a field
Of poppies
So I extract from my flask
EPO
An good old medicine

And when comes the end of the stage,
I’m hailed as a hero.
Bravo, Bravo
The champagne, I don’t give a damn about it.
I prefer my EPO.

EPO te quiero
Thanks to you , I’ll be “numero uno”
EPO te quiero
Thanks to you, I’ll have the most beautiful of the jerseys.

Your attention ! Everyone into the saddles!
Each morning, with EPO, get a leg up.
A product of ours the whole world envies.
For you and your bicycle, EPO is what you need.
Thanks to you my EPO.

EPO te quiero
Thanks to you , I’ll be “numero uno”
EPO te quiero
Thanks to you, I’ll have the most beautiful of the jerseys.

I’ll be cuter than Laurent Fignon,
Stronger than Poulidor
And far crazier than Virenque,
And more handsome than Bernard Hinault.
Thanks to you, my EPO.

My PP, my PO, my PP, my EPO,
My PP, my PO, my PP, my EPO
,
EPOooooooooooo
