Original itv here.
When was the last time you pulled an all nighter? We never sleep at night. We only take the time to rest when we’re travelling, in buses, taxis and planes. We got trouble remembering our last full night in a bed. It became a way of life.
Who do you call when you have insomnia? Our big brothers or our best friend. Or else we call our mom because she talks a lot, she’s very talkative.
Your most beautiful nightly lie? Larry: When I was 15, I told my mom I had a child. No need to tell you how she reacted.
Your favorite hour of the night? What do you do during it? 8:00 PM, when the evening starts and we wonder what we’re gonna do. Then the night is full of possibilties.
Do you work better at night? Yes, especially towards 5 or 6 in the morning, when the sun rises. We’re rarely in France, so night or morning often means it’s the beginning of the afternoon in Europe. Then we go on nightly meetings, which are often the most productive.
When you were kids, did night mean anguish or quietness? We grew up in a peaceful area where everyone knows and respects each other. We knew we were safe then. Night’s always been associated with this feeling.
Do you have a ritual before going to sleep? We pray, always call a member of our family, check our planning for the next day. We dance so we can be K.O and fall asleep quickly.
What would you never wear at night? PJ’s! We don’t have any! Since most of our full nights happen in night flights, we sleep completely dressed. If we’re lucky enough to be home, we sleep naked. When it comes to going out, we’d never party in fluo/flashy colours. We prefer well-cut jeans, some discreet t-shirt with a logo which makes all the difference.
Who would like to meet during the night? Our big brothers, our family, the people we love and whom we unfortunately don’t have enough time to see.
Where would you take them? With us so they’d take part in one of our dance classes. Since we’re the youngest, it’s a pleasure to show our family how much we’ve grown and that we’ve got responsabilities. They’re always proud to see us work, order people around…
Say you catch a train at night. Where do you go? The Champs Elysées by taking the RER A, or Sarcelles-Saint-Brice with the suburb train at Gare du Nord, to go see our mom in the house in which we grew. It is always associated with comfort and family.
What does night smell like? It can smell very good or very bad, but it’s always very exciting. In Sarcelles where we gew up, the area always had a very particular smell, composed of all the neighbourhood activities and cooking. And when it smelt bad, it used to mean something had happened. We’ve never smelt those particular smells elsewhere.
The nightly sentence you’d never dare pronounce during the day? During the night, it’s time to say ‘I love you’. During the day, it’s ‘too much’.
