The Video - Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot's "Bonnie & Clyde"

A wonderful promo clip from '68 - a proto video made decades before the word "music video" was concocted!

It's the delicious, timeless, sumptuous "Bonnie & Clyde" performed by the genius Serge Gainsbourg and the stunning BB!

The song, of course, tells the tale of the infamous outlaw couple Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

The lyrics are actually based on a poem entitled "The Trail's End", written by Parker herself a few weeks before she and Clyde were shot by the cops on May 23, 1934.

"Bonnie & Clyde" was released on two albums in 1968: Gainsbourg's seminal album "Initials B.B.," and Gainsbourg and Bardot's album "Bonnie and Clyde."
