Quebec Pluriel wants apologies

Quebec Pluriel, which recently asked for the removal of the clip entitled "the cannibal" on now requires public apologies to the Black community.

The organization alleges the clip feeds prejudices against the Blacks. It judges insulting, defamatory, disrespectful and racist the remarks and the representation which are conveyed in the clip. It is particularly offended by the association of cannibalism with the black community and Kunta Kinte which is the central character of the best of the novel Roots. Roots is a 1977 American television miniseries based on Alex Haley's work an afro-American writer.

Since April 18, Quebec Pluriel has asked Salambo Productions and Bell Canada to discontinue the transmission of this clip on support media, Internet and other media.

Are all French speaking canadians represented or tagged worldwide with the humor used by the silly characters? It is quite obvious that the French canadian community has accepted the humor used in all the clips to laugh at oneself. It is too idiotic to even imagine one would interpret it as reality! Then? Remove them all!

Têtes à Claques is a Canadian humour website.

Mira Foundation and Têtes à Claques, Woof!

For the first time a Tetes a Claques clip will be seen on Canadian TV. Don't miss the new clip to be aired Sunday, April 22, 2007, between 6:00 p.m. and 10 p.m. on French TV, Television Quatre Saisons (TQS), for MiraStar's Telethon aimed to raise funds for the Mira Foundation.

MIRA pursues the objective to bring greater autonomy to handicapped people and to facilitate their social integration by providing them with dogs that are fully trained to meet the needs of each individual. Many services are offered and trained guide-dogs are made possible for the Blinds free of charge.

The event will be entertaining and informative and to help raise funds many Quebec artists will take part in it. To help raise funds, Michel Beaudet of has created an exclusive clip meant for the Foundation. Woof!

According to several reporters that were presented with only few seconds of the clip during the Press Conference in Montreal, the sneak preview was enough to have them laughing!

Until the next big news...posted below on April 9, 2007

Did you know the creator of Têtes à Claques sent 7 DVD copies with TAC clips to local producers, never to be followed up by any on this project? Apparently, there is a sort of pride hanging around in publicity agencies and some have missed their call on original material. Too bad!

Michel Beaudet obviously listened to his own instinct and changed the model!
That is just to say, do not wait for others' approval you may get nowhere!


There's an English saying within the French Quebecer community taken from

Elvis Bob Gratton: TINK BIG! STI'E!

Good luck to you all with all of your projects small or big!
