The Canal Apartment gets colorized (sort of)

Here at the Great Apartment we don't often mention the Canal Apartment, our other apartment, but here's a quickie for you.

Last summer, Dulux Valentine sponsored the painting of three walls in Lyon, Marseilles and Paris, filming the whole thing and making a young, trendy video out of the 'event'.

The Paris section took two days and was filmed from a multitude of angles. It just so happens that the wall chosen is 4 seconds from the front door of the Canal Apartment.

The video was supposed to be ready in July, got pushed back to September, and then of course I just forgot about it. But now I've remembered! I'll spare you the full film, but here's the half with our nearby wall in it (hint: it's the tall one. The short fat ones are in Lyon and Marseilles!).

If you want to see the whole thing, check out www.wallsaredancing.fr (what a ridiculous name...)

Strangely enough, the wall - once ripe for graffiti and bill sticking - has stayed more or less intact ever since. If you come stay with us at the Canal Apartment, there's no way you can miss it.
