Karl Lagerfeld sidekick Baptiste Giabiconi's video for his first-ever pop single Showtime has just hit the internet and, wow, it's, um, something. Giabiconi looks amazing (so what else is new?), and you get to hear him speak English (new!). Lots of Chrome Hearts jewelry, meaningful Blue Steel smoldering, vroom-vrooming on the motorcycle, and a roadside diner. Giabiconi blows up some redneck's car, has sex with the redneck's girlfriend in a motel, and then rides off into the sunset. Really, it's kind of so bad it's great—excuse us while we go watch it again.
