During the 2008 United States presidential campaign, Yann Barthès and his Le Petit Journal crew created a buzz on the Internet when they installed themselves, along with several joking banners, clearly visible in the background of a "very serious" American show filmed in New York City. On the night of the election, they joined New Yorkers in Times Square and hosted aloft a banner bearing the word "Cassoulet", as well as another version with the words "Cassoulet Forever".

On November 5, the day following the election, "Cassoulet" was the 62nd most researched word on Google worldwide.
