All Knitted Music Video

This is really amazing work - this band, Tricot Machine, did an entirely knitted music video! I haven't had time to work the entire lyrics, but here's what I've heard and can verify its the right words:

T'as les joues rouges, boréal
Tes couettes noires virent au blancs
comme l'asphalte
Ils tombent des peaux de lièvres sur Montréal

On s'éclipse du party
la neige glisse sur nos pieds
les flocons dansent doucement

Complete lyrics are here:

The animation is fabulous!

Title of this song is "Peaux-de-Lievres" (essentially, it's about a young couple enjoying winter snow together) The background scenes are in Montreal - Mount Royal, the Olympic Stadium, etc.)

Dictionary of Canadian Biography
By Francess G. Halpenny
pp xxxii-xxxiii
[discussion of Chipewyan sub-groups] ... Athapaskans: ... The Hares (Peaux-de-Lievres) were identified by Alexander Mackenzie in 1789; they inhabit the area north and west of Great Bear Lake to the Mackenzie River.
