Les Horribles Cernettes – You Only Love Your Collider
An amateur pop promo made by people working at CERN in the 90s. The people in this video were the subject of the first ever photo on the web.
According to band member, Silvano de Gennaro:
“Back in 1992, after their show at the CERN Hardronic Festival, my colleague Tim Berners-Lee asked me for a few scanned photos of “the CERN girls” to publish them on some sort of information system he had just invented, called the “World Wide Web”. I had only a vague idea of what that was, but I scanned some photos on my Mac and FTPed them to Tim’s now famous “info.cern.ch”.”
