Jean-Marie Le Pen during a meeting in Palavas-Les-Flots on January 21st, 2017

Jean-Marie Le Pen has just unveiled the video promoting his book Son of the Nation and it turns out to be very unexpected.

For the release of the first volume of his memoirs, Jean-Marie Le Pen saw the big picture. In a glass elevator, with background music Star Wars, the former honorary president of the National Front slips into the skin of the famous Darth Vader.

On the background of the famous soundtrack of John Williams, Imperial MarchJean-Marie Le Pen "is back" on the "first step of the podium". The co-founder of the National Front made a surrealist appearance in a transparent elevator and began an explanation to sell his book: "I'm Jean-Marie Le Pen, the little beast that goes up, up, up". Before continuing, "Let me give you a little bit of disinterested advice, read Volume 1 of my memoirs, you will learn a lot of things that have been hidden from you, usually by the media."

The staging seems a little addressed to his daughter who "ousted the Front National". All that's missing is the famous replica "I'm your father" for Marine Le Pen to feel directly concerned.

More than 100,000 copies published

The book of Jean-Marie Le Pen, The Son of the Nation, published February 28, is a real success in bookstores. Even before its appearance, this first volume was already exhausted. The work had to be reissued exceptionally to 100,000 copies.

His promotional video, published on March 13th, saw a lot of reactions from users on social networks.
