Discusses an example of Chion's (1994, pp.129–131) acousmêtre in Les Vacances de M. Hulot (1953). The railway station loudspeaker has power over the holidaymakers who rush from platform to platform at its command. But because the command is unintelligible, this is a sound gag and an example of humourous acousmêtre.
