To Brighten Your Day

Flight of the Conchords. Have you heard of them?

You maybe either... 
a) think I'm crazy for even asking that question because "everyone loves them", or 
b) shook your head no, or 
c) none of the above because you are just kind of mindlessly blog reading through your list of blogs you mindlessly read. I get that. 

But let's talk about these guys.

Nutshell: New Zealand comedy duo, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement

Bigger nutshell: Coming at you straight from Wikipedia, life's resource: "The duo's comedy and music became the basis of a BBC radio series, then an American television series, called Flight of the Concords. They used to refer to themselves as 'New Zealand's 4th most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo', however now they are 'the almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand.'" Bret McKenzie was the music supervisor for the most recent Muppets movie, and won the Academy Award for best original song. (And you know those Muppets will forever be in my heart.)

Now, this is not a full endorsement of everything that Flight of the Conchords offers the world. This is a statement that they are insanely clever and hilarious and talented, and the following video is the best thing I've seen produced on the Internets in a long, long time. Let's just get right to it.

That song has been in my head since I first saw this. Those kids, you guys. They are so perfect. I have probably 23 favorite parts of that video so we'll just leave it at - I love it.
