What is not to love about Flight of the Conchords
? Their dry witty humor, their awkward candor and their classically handsome bone structure make them an unforgettable duo. The self-titled HBO series has catapulted the pair into
folk singing fame. The release of their album “Flight of the Conchords” means Bret and Jermaine’s suave lyrics and sweet rhymes are now available to all the ladies (and men) of the world. Listening to the album certainly helps tie me over until the second season of the show arrives.
One of my favorite tracks includes Bret and Jermaine channeling their inner rap alter ego’s: the Hiphopopotamus and Rhymenocerous. As Jermaine spits his flow he bellows, “They call me the Hiphopopotamus/ flows that glow like phosphorous/ poppin’ off the top of this esophagus/ rockin’ this metropolis…” In other words, they’re pretty fierce.
You can watch the unstoppable duo here: And make sure you don’t miss the impressive choreographed segment.
