Fireworks, cars playing football, death race… Koh Lantess, the “Koh Lanta of cities”, has stopped in the town of Val Fourré in Mantes-la-Jolie, this Sunday, January 8, 2023. The filming was organized by videographers from Val-de-Marne, who became known for their parody of the game show Koh Lanta, broadcast on social networks. The episode recorded at the Fresnes remand center last July, had also created controversy after the detainees took part in a kart race, part of public opinion considering it indecent to propose such an activity to incarcerated persons.

Here, no islands lost in the middle of the ocean, poles, or insects to eat, but two teams made up of young people from sensitive neighborhoods or, as was the case in previous episodes, police officers and guards , which are measured in sporting events. This Sunday, the Youtubeurs were opposed to Mantais around, in particular, a game of football in the car, with a big ball, inspired by the Rocket League video gameand a sprint, in a padded jumpsuit, with a dog on the heels.

Cries, fireworks, scenes of jubilation

Shooting, which brought together more than a hundred people, including many spectators, lasted the whole afternoon. The atmosphere was good-natured, according to several of our sources, but there was considerable unrest.

On a video that we obtained, a man chants slogans with a megaphone, taken up in chorus by the crowd present. On another, a Renault Mégane and a Fiat Punto rodeo on a lawn at the edge of rue Rabelais, in a life-size Rocket League. cars collide, in the middle of smoke bombs and other fireworks, while a police van remains at a safe distance. Other sequences show a dozen young people breaking into a street screaming, or even different noisy crowds.

The police stayed away

The police received numerous calls from residents, both worried and angry. “It’s a shame, it’s unacceptable, squeals a resident of a private residence near the ice rink. There were screams, dogs barking, mortars, young people climbing in the trees. It was anarchy. I called the municipal police who didn’t even come and almost sent me packing. » Residents of the neighborhood point to the damage caused by the “foot-car” part on the lawn.
