I'd managed to avoid watching the original, but I watched this and had to see if the original was as annoying. It is. I'm going to have a Gangnam Style cleanser now. Or possibly something from Die Antwoord. Maybe even Rebecca Black's Friday.

Very, very weird. For a french like myself "spleen" is a synonym for sadness or melancholy.

It has a history of meaning that in English too, but unlike French where I think the organ got a different name, in English the name was applied to the organ I think because at some point in history they actually thought it did have a psychological component. Now totally curious about the two etymologies.
Wish my French was better.
