Homeland Star Claire Danes Explaining Techno On Ellen DeGeneres

Imagine explaining the techno scene to your mom and dad for the first time and realising they just don’t get it. This is how Hollywood star Claire Danes (the female lead in Homeland, Romeo & Juliet) was commenting on her new hobby in Berlin to talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres. Gladly, while showing what good and bad techno means, she took Berlin’s clubbing haven Berghain as a reference to all that is good about it.
