Flight of the Conchords Returns to Record Charity Single
It’s been about three years since we last saw the musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords together. Since then, Bret McKenzie has won an Academy Award for his original song ‘Man or Muppet‘ for ‘The Muppets,’ and Jemaine Clement was in ‘Men in Black 3.’ If you ask us though, McKenzie and Clement are at their best when they are together. (We know, it’s hard to believe there could be something better than ‘MIB3.’) That’s why it’s great to see they’ve reunited and ended the silent treatment they had imposed on their long-suffering manager Murray, in the video above.
The purpose of the reunion was to cut a charity single for Cure Kids, which raises money for kids with deadly diseases in their native New Zealand. To write the song, the duo enlisted a classroom full of youngsters to tell them what kids need from charities these days. Of course, kids are basically adorable maniacs, so they wound up with some pretty hilarious lyrics.
Now you can purchase ‘Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)’ on iTunes for $1.79, and all the profits will go to charity. No word on whether this means Bret and Jemaine will be reuniting for more projects, but we have our fingers crossed.
