My curiosity was piqued by the mysterious journey through Paris by a car with a strange artefact on its roof, emitting and spreading subsonic vibrations and waves like a virus as it made its way through the city in March or April 1968. the journey, witnessed by just a small proportion of the populace, the Gaston Lagaffes of the city and the country, took place a month or two before the May 1968 Revolution. If, as some say, the Russian Revolution of 1917 was originally nothing more than a happening organised by Lenin, then perhaps the origin of the Paris revolution of 1968 was the bad vibes of a jinx.
