The lawyer said it was sad that two men who loved each other so much and were happy, kind, and original died like that.

The Bogdanoffs gained worldwide prominence after an appearance in a crypto ad that went viral globally.

In France, they were household names due in part to their unusual facial features.

They began their careers appearing in science TV shows, including “Temps X” (Time X in English) and “Rayons X” (X Rays).

Both obtained a Ph.D. from the University of Burgundy, with Igor’s in theoretical physics.
