Every little step Leah McSweeney takes, we will be there. Take our admiration as a compliment; no creepy intentions whatsoever towards the founder of Married to the Mob. Her recent starring in “C’etait un Rendezvous,” the promo for Casio Baby-G (scored by NiRE, her Mob fam-a-lam) takes viewers on an adventure in voyeurism through the illuminated streets of Paris. The story is described by G-Shock as her search for “what excitement life has to offer—and not apologizing for it.” If you’ve traveled through France, then you might recognize three key places on the menu for Leah’s said excitement.
0:27 – Gare Du Nord (Northern Train Station)
The Gare Du Nord is located in the 10th arrondissement, which used to service the North of France, as well as Belgium, Germany, Holland and the UK.
1:07 – The Pigalle
Leah arrives in the Pigalle area. It’s known as that because the metro stop there is Pigalle, which is in the 18th arrondissement down the hill from the Montmartre. Many painters resided in the Montmarte, well recognized in pop culture from its prominence in the film Amelie. The most notable locale is the Moulin Rouge Cabaret club, kind of a dirty (and fun!) area because it’s full of strip clubs and sex shops. Seeeeedy!
1:45 – Place du Trocadero
After a slight detour through the subway (where it is unclear if she took the subway or not…haha) she ends up on the Place du Trocadero, which is in the 16th arrondissement above the Palais du Trocadero, which overlooks the river and the Eiffel Tower and Champs de Mars. This location is also famous because it’s where Ricky Powell photographed Run DMC in 1986 with the Eiffel Tower in the distance.
