Scarlett Johansson Sings Brigitte Bardot's Lines In "Bonnie & Clyde"

Scarlett Johansson has teamed up with Lulu Gainsbourg to cover "Bonnie & Clyde" —a song that was originally recorded by Brigitte Bardot and Lulu's father, Serge Gainsbourg— for an upcoming tribute album, "From Gainsbourg to Lulu".

Scarlett's singing ability has been the source of much debate, but who needs a world-renowned singing voice when you're this good at standing around posing with Moet and Chandon champagne bottles and sitting outside in a sea of balloons for some reason?

I find the above video pretty painful, not being moved by either the Gainsbourg or the pose-with-a-jeroboam-of-champagne-and-laugh-vivaciously school of entertainment. But I don't find Johansson's voice particularly monstrous. It's not shown off to best effect here, being mainly a whispery garnish on a libidinally Gallic sandwich, but I will say that I've heard Johansson singing a genuinely gorgeous, smoky version of Gershwin's Summertime, and was surprised by its loveliness. If she wants to sing, then hell, she should go ahead and sing.

Just as long as she cuts that Moet shit out. Whoever came up with that nonsense ought to go sit in a quiet room and think hard about their life for a few minutes.
