A theory from another planet. But if the Bogdanoff brothers taught us anything during their lifetime, it is that with them, anything was to be expected. Present on the set of Quotidien this Friday, January 7 due to the release of his new book entitled A robbery against the Atlantic, Frédéric Beigbeder took the opportunity to review current events in the company of Yann Barthès and his columnists. So, obviously, the conversation necessarily drifted on the terrible tragedy of the moment: the deaths of Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff.
Four days after the death of Igor Bogdanoff, the second of the famous twins to have succumbed in a week from contamination to the coronavirus, the French writer wanted to pay them a nice tribute. Before leaving on a completely crazy theory. “I think of Igor’s six children. Everyone laughed a lot about their looks and all that but …”, after remaining thoughtful for a few seconds, the writer resumed the course of his story.
Frédéric Beigbeder: “I wonder if the Bogdanoffs did not sacrifice themselves to tell people: get vaccinated”
“Can I come up with a theory? They were amazing boys, scientists who aspired to be scholars. And I wonder if they didn’t sacrifice themselves, if they didn’t give. their lives to tell people: get vaccinated “. In front of the astonished air of Yann Barthès, Frédéric Beigbeder continued his journey of thought. “They weren’t vaccinated. And they proved that they had to be vaccinated.” A little discomfort was then felt on the set. The presenter of Quotidien took the opportunity to launch the ad, not without saying that “it was a theory, like any other”, looking a little embarrassed.
