The Inspiration for SNL’s ‘Les Jeunes de Paris’

My fiancé is a fan of Starbucks’ music and that’s where we came across the song “Ta Douleur” by the artist Camille. It just tickled us pink. We just were looking for a reason to dance around, really. I first wrote it with Sarah Baker at The Groundlings (before it appeared on SNL). It’s sort of just our exaggerated portrayal of our American interpretation of French youth culture, inspired by the song.
