Your Weird Music Video of the Day is From Petite Meller
The track is “Stevie Jobs” and featues lyrics like “Push your finger on the application.” What does that even mean?

If you couldn’t look away, you’ll want to read her bio.
P E T I T E is a singer-songwriter, producing Nuvo-Jazzy pop in French and English. Leading it with angelic childlike vocals, oddly enough compared to a post-modern Mia Farrow with a Brigitte Bardot allure.
P E T I T E co-founded the band Terry Poison, performing worldwide, releasing such singles as “Comme Ci Comme Ca”. The band opened for Depeche Mode and played in various festivals such as SXSW, CMJ and Rock en Seine.
As a solo artist, P E T I T E has opened for such acts as MARK RONSON, THE HURTS and UFFIE.
Following last autumn buzzed-about video for “NYC Time” which premiered at NY Fashion Week 2012 and was widely reviewed, P E T I T E spent most of her time in Paris collaborating with the french bands “NAIVE NEW BEATERS” and “CALL ME SENOR”, and with various artists she admires such as the photographers Napoleon Habeica, Dimitri Coste and the upcoming young designers Costello Tagliapietra.
P E T I T E’s new seductive video was directed by A.T. Mann and J. Bolandi, it features Petite riding a massive computer mouse and Brooklyn-born dance-rapper Shamel Pitts dancing on a giant keyboard.
