French weather woman keeps promise to do forecast naked

- November 21st, 2013

Followers of France’s national men’s soccer team — and, well, men in general — had a little extra incentive for Les Bleus to sneak into the World Cup the other day.

Doria Tillier, the weather woman for French TV station Canal+ and former model, told viewers that she would do the forecast naked if France qualified for the World Cup. The entire nation was practically trembling at the prospect.

Now, keep in mind two things here:

First, Ukraine posted a 2-0 win in the first leg of the World Cup qualifying playoff, meaning France needed to win by three to get the aggregate victory and book its ticket to Brazil. Lets put it this way: the French were in a pretty deep hole against Ukraine.

Second, Tillier never said she how she would do the forecast naked.

Anyway, miracle of miracles, France posted a 3-0 win to qualify. Would Tillier hold up her end of the bargain, a nation asked, and strip down for her next forecast?

Indeed she did, with a slight wrinkle or two. One of them was that the spot was shot in the village of Poil, which apparently translates to “naked” or “nude.”

See for yourself how it turned out.

    Poil means “hair” or “a single hair”, and when we say “à poil”, yes it means naked, as in “only covered by her hair”… Just one of these expressions… Sounds silly when explained…!
