Relevant and my favorite

[–]7355135061550 27 points28 points  (0 children)

The dramatic zoom-in at the end killed me

[–]DatPiff916 38 points39 points  (5 children)

I got introduced to this show after meeting a girl at the bar, she took be back to her place to smoke hella weed, fuck, and binge watch this show.

These always bring back memories to a simpler time.

Just curious, but was her name Meghan and was this in Oceanside, California because I also was met a girl at a bar and went back to her placed and binge watched Flight of the Concords and fuck, but I was in the Navy at the time so no smoking the devil's lettuce for me, but she did in fact smoke the devil's lettuce.

d-dad?

[–]Spotted_cow_drinker 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Yes son, it is I. Sorry, having a really hard time finding the cigarettes I smoke at the store. Hang in there, kiddo.

[–]DatPiff916 1 point2 points  (1 child)

No it wasn't

[–]Spotted_cow_drinker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok, still really weird coincidence.

[–]matthewtheninja 8 points9 points  (2 children)

This may be my favorite of their songs as well. I loved it so much I bought the exact same tiny red piano.

[–]John_NR_Wayne 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Ooh where did you find it? Now I have a hankering for a tiny red piano.

[–]matthewtheninja 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I got it off Amazon a few years back, looks like they're still for sale!

[–]MonkeySherm 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I knew it would be if you’re into it before I clicked, not disappointed

[–]HeyYoPaul 175 points176 points  (6 children)

Um, can I please have a look at the lyrics?

[–]DoubledickQuadballs 80 points81 points  (5 children)

This is another one of your weird songs, man.

[–]billothy 34 points35 points  (4 children)

In what way?

[–]Back41DayOnly 33 points34 points  (3 children)

I think sometimes you hear what you want to hear...

[–]backcountrybrian 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Definitely a bit gay

[–]timeye13 19 points20 points  (1 child)

He’s pretending you’re a woman?....No, that’s not gay.

[–]werewolfbatmizvah 15 points16 points  (0 children)

That’s right I put a wig on you and then I just laid there and spooned you...Brett you’ve got it going on.

[–]Discreetinsanity 155 points156 points  (6 children)

Why cant a heterosexual guy tell another heterosexual guy that he thinks his booties fly.

[–]RonnieFuckster 43 points44 points  (2 children)

Not all the time, obviously

[–]cocoboco101dcfc 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But when he’s got a problem with his self esteem

[–]bugslove 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just when he has trouble with his self esteem

[–]coffeebeard1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My roommates and I say this to each other all the time.

[–]youwantitwhen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you saying people can have multiple booties? And all or just some are fly?

[–]ALincolnTime 44 points45 points  (9 children)

So excited for the movie! It's business time!

[–]ashbyashbyashby 16 points17 points  (8 children)

Umm, isnt it just going to be a live concert?

[–]Photonomicron 25 points26 points  (4 children)

Their live performances are SO MUCH BETTER than their TV show, which is very good.

[–]AdmiralRed13 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Agree to disagree? Simply due to their manager in the series.

[–]misterrunon 35 points36 points  (1 child)

I think Murray is the best character in the show.

[–]dsull18Spotify 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Rhys Darby is a treasure.

[–]ashbyashbyashby 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Their songs are hilarious, but I can't handle 90 minutes of comedy music. The dry humour mixed with songs in the TV show was a perfect blend. Especially for me, as they nailed the New Zealand sense of humour.

[–]ALincolnTime 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Bret said “We’re going to film a little something this year,” elaborating, “We’re going to shoot an hour thing.”

So, who knows? Could be a concert, I'll take what I can get.

[–]ashbyashbyashby 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It'll be a concert. Not sure of Bret's calendar, but Jemaine is constantly working on other projects, and they put the nail in the coffin of the TV show several years ago, sadly :(

[–]allrevvedup 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Still tho

[–]Stamm1983 72 points73 points  (5 children)

My name Brett. I had a roommate in college who would play this for me whenever I was feeling down. Worked every time.

[–]nathanmon 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Brit? Like Brittany?

[–]chibimod3 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Same. Or my roommates would just jam it out with me before a date to make me laugh. It's definitely a good song to share a name with.

[–]Minthia 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Brit?

[–]Caballero5011 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My best friend plays it and sings it to me quite regularly too. It’s great that such a good song has our name in it.

[–]BEENHEREALLALONG 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hey just wanna day your bootys fly

[–]WONDERBOY_1971 31 points32 points  (3 children)

Their music is actually quite complex. He plays some funky crazy chords in this song. FOTC frickin rule

[–]CheekyMunky 24 points25 points  (0 children)

"Not in a gay way, just in a 'hey mate, I wanted to say that you're looking okay' way" is one of my favorite lyrics ever. The rhythm and rhyme within it, and the way it layers onto the music, is intricate as hell but so perfectly crafted that it feels totally natural as he rolls through it.

[–]LyreGame 0 points1 point  (1 child)

not really complex (this song at least)? the tab on this song is quite simple actually if you check it out.

[–]theflyingjibSoundCloud 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s not complex to play, but it and a lot of their songs are pretty complex compositionally.

[–]uglydeepseacreatures 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Depending on the street, Bret’s definitely in the top three!

[–]SILLYBILLYMACADILLY 45 points46 points  (1 child)

By far my favorite from them "Your beards good"

[–]bluEyedillusion 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Just a little compliment. About your beard... being good.

[–]buttfacenosehead 11 points12 points  (3 children)

You guys have to watch the movie Gentleman Broncos. Jermaine is nuts! https://youtu.be/BaiO3HTKXL8

[–]MurkLurker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks for that, I never even knew that existed!

[–]Leucaeus 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Oh my holy crap.... Surveillance does. I hate those

[–]d0hdeaux 18 points19 points  (5 children)

I forgot how much I miss this show. Time for a rewatch.

Hiphopopotamus & Sugar Lumps are gonna be in my head all night.

They call me the Hiphopopotamus

Flows that glow like phosphorous

Popping off the top of this esophagus

Rocking this metropolis

I'm not a large water-dwelling mammal

Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis?

Did Steve tell you that perchance? Steve!

[–]irock613 14 points15 points  (0 children)

"My lyrics are bottomless,

... ..."

[–]zapho300 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What kind of rapper name is Steve?

[–]mzjtyu 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Sugar lumps is a fantastic running song. Pumps me up like no other. Actually a lot of their songs are good for running.

[–]cocoboco101dcfc 0 points1 point  (1 child)

We’re Both In Love With A Sexy Lady is on my exercise playlist

[–]mzjtyu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ooh that's another good one. Mutha'uckas and Too Many Dicks are also on my playlist.

[–]LastBaron 15 points16 points  (2 children)

He's so shiny.

[–]SubterrelProspector 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Like the treasure of a sunken pirate wreck.

Scrub the deck.

[–]LastBaron 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You don't swing it like you used to man

[–]operachick209 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Russtyler 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]buuky 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Brit as in Britney?

[–]LukeG88 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Can't wait to see these live in the UK in April. Been waiting years for it.

[–]Dontturnyoureyes 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Such an under appreciated show

[–]blootery 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not that I did it.

[–]DStew713 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I wish I could upvote this more than once. Love these guys!!

Edit: not in a gay way

[–]backcountrybrian 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Just in hey I wanted to say that you’re looking okay way

Jemaine Clement
artist pic

Jemaine Clement (born 10 January 1974 in New Zealand) is an actor, musician, director, producer, comedian and writer, best known for being half of the musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords with Bret McKenzie.

Describing himself as "part Māori part European", Clement spent his formative years in the Wairarapa region of New Zealand. Moving to New Zealand's capital Wellington, where he studied drama and film at Victoria University of Wellington, Clement met Taika Waititi (a.k.a. Taika Cohen) with whom he went on to form The Humourbeasts. In 2004, the Humourbeasts toured New Zealand in a stage show titled The Untold Tales of Maui,[2] rewriting the traditional Maori legends of Māui. The duo were the recipients of New Zealand's highest comedy honour, the Billy T Award.

It was also at Victoria University that Clement and Bret McKenzie formed Flight of the Conchords. They have toured internationally and released three CDs: Folk the World Tour in 2002, The Distant Future EP in 2007, and Flight of the Conchords in 2008. The Conchords produced a six-part improvisational comedy radio program on BBC Radio 2 and have appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Late Show with David Letterman and The Late Late Show. After a successful appearance in 2005 on HBOs One Night Stand, the Conchords were offered their own 12-part HBO series Flight of the Conchords. Its first season ran from June to September 2007, and was renewed for a second season, which aired on HBO in the US from January to March 2009.

Clement has also appeared in a number of feature films; the one that has received the widest distribution to date is romantic comedy Eagle vs Shark, in which he played one of the starring roles, as a young man who finds a girlfriend in spite of being rather irritating. Clement had made his feature debut five years earlier in kung fu comedy Tongan Ninja, directed by New Zealander Jason Stutter. He has worked with Stutter on two more movies to date, low budget ghost comedy Diagnosis Death, and the drama Predicament, based on the book by late Kiwi novelist Ronald Hugh Morrieson. Clement also has a role in American comedy Gentlemen Broncos, directed by Napoleon Dynamite's Jared Hess.

Clement has starred in a number of television commercials internationally and provided voiceovers for many others in New Zealand. In 1999, Clement was a Radio Awards Winner as writer for Trashed, for Channel Z, Wellington.[4] In 2000 he was given a Special Radio Awards Commendation for The Sunglass Store.[5] He also was a writer and cast member of the television shows Skitz and Tellylaughs in New Zealand.

On 5 February 2006, Outback Steakhouse debuted a series of television commercials starring Clement during Super Bowl XL in which Clement pretends to be Australian and feigns an Australian accent. One of the long-running gags of Flight of the Conchords is the traditional ill-will between New Zealand and Australia and the differences between their corresponding accents. The campaign ended in July 2006.

Jemaine, along with fellow Conchord member Bret, was featured as one of 2008's "100 Sexiest People" in a special edition of the Australian magazine Who.

How this omits his role in Men In Black 3 is beyond me.

[–]AdizzleStarkizzle 26 points27 points  (4 children)

And his song in Disney’s Moana.

[–]waitwhatwut 13 points14 points  (3 children)

And his funking amazing role in Legion!

[–]Zirie 4 points5 points  (2 children)

And in Rio and Rio 2. His duet with the frog is how I know about him.

[–]traiden 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I downloaded Flight of the Conchords randomly with zero idea what they were about. So pleasantly surprised when they broke out into song. Love these guys.

[–]AdmiralRed13 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Am I the only person that wishes they'd release a straight up album? I love their comedy, but good lord they are such good musicians.

[–]SneakyLilHobbit 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Good news - they already have three!

[–]AdmiralRed13 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Edit: God damn it.
