In this “Camera Café” skit, a discussion between an employee and an HRD about retirement and the years of contribution required hasn’t aged one bit in 2023.
TELEVISION – The series hasn’t aged one iota. While the protest against the pension reform desired by the government of Emmanuel Macron does not abate, an excerpt from a sketch of the TV series coffee chamber hit the mark on social media.
In a tweet shared by the M6 channel account, on the occasion of the issuance of a special bonus for the 20th anniversary of this cycle on life in business, the excerpt shows a debate that seems to fit perfectly with the news.
” Is it true that we will have to work longer before retiring? Oh yeah ! Forty years of contributions will not be enough, it will take 41, even 42 years “, we can hear for the first time in this exchange in front of the mythical coffee machine of the fictional company GES (Geugène Electro Stim).
“Is it true that we will have to work longer?” 😱 20 years later, #CaméraCafé is still relevant… https://t.co/SoIwtAn3mG
In the rest of the excerpt, Yvan Le Bolloc’h’s character, worried about his future retirement, insists: ” But how do I (sic) if I get fired like everyone else at 50? Well, you wait to find a job to contribute again “, then answers his HRD Jean-Guy Lecointre, played by the actor Gérard Chaillou.
” At 50, I risk whipping myself before I find a job! Well, you will no longer have to contribute. Isn’t life beautiful? replies Jean-Guy Lecointre, not without some sarcasm. A discussion that has not aged one iota in 2023.
One “matter that concerns us”
Broadcast on Tuesday 24 January on M6, the main “Camera Café, 20 years already” will allow you to find the emblematic characters of the series broadcast in the early 2000s. Bruno Solo and Yvan Le Bolloc’h will reprise their roles, for the time being one broadcast.
The two actors, when going through the television sets to promote this evening in homage to the series, were also delighted with the strong mobilization observed on Thursday, January 19, against the pension reform. On the set of C à Vous, the same afternoon of this day of mobilization in almost all of France, Yvan Le Bolloc’h had greeted ” a very good day “.

Yvan Le Bolloc’h, a longtime opponent of this reform and who supported Jean-Luc Mélenchon in the presidential elections of 2012, 2017 and 2022, has also allowed himself to add a layer on social networks. The actor shared the excerpt released by M6: “ Right on the subject at hand #Retirements he tweeted.

” Thank you M6 Groupe for having found it among the 700 sketches of Camera Café “added the actor who also assured on the set of France 5 that” the topic of pensions, bullying, racism, sexism, disability – all of that was discussed on Camera Café, which was a show whose main goal was to be funny, but it was also social satire! “.
