Media Rats & Rugby Thugs Beckon Thee to Gay Paree

This past weekend, I finally saw Ratatouille, the Disney/Pixar/Brad Bird film about [spoiler alert] a rat that becomes a chef by pulling a guy’s hair. The movie’s good, if you don’t mind looking at cartoon rats of varying degrees of disgustingness for 110 minutes, but not as exciting or satisfying as The Incredibles, Disney/Pixar/Bird’s last collaboration. But the movie makes Paris look absolutely gorgeous, which I understand isn’t hard, but still, the Pixarized Paris was one of the best parts of the movie, and makes me want to visit Paris immediately (as does another less-than-exemplary film, Everyone Says I Love You).
After Ratatouille, I found the photo above on Towleroad, which identified it as the work of the French tourism site C’est So Paris, which hopes to attract Londoners to Paris for the forthcoming Rugby World Cup matches “in the city of love.” (See the full ad here.)
If Paris is as gorgeous as Pixar suggests AND full of mashing rugby thugs, I’d be willing to overlook the haute cuisine prepared by vermin…
