The French President whipped fans into a frenzy, during his visit to New York City.
Nicholas Sarkozy had a top-level lunch with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the French Consulate, where they discussed issues including Iran, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
He's no stranger to meeting world leaders, but even the Secretary-General seemed taken aback by the crowd that had gathered outside.
Sarkozy told reporters the U.N. and France were committed to tackling global security and climate change.
