Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement haven’t worked together as the Flight of the Conchords for a couple of years now. Each has been swanning around Hollywood either co-starring in the third instalment of the Men in Black series or collecting an Oscar for writing the music to the The Muppets.
But they have now decided to get the old band back together as they look to raise money for the New Zealand charity, Cure Kids. The duo have recorded a new song, “Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That),” to increase awareness of the charity, but, along the way, they have received help from various Kiwi celebrities too.
The 14 minute long video also features the comedian Rhys Darby, who reprises his role as the groups haphazard manager, Murray, with the trio returning to host one of their infamous band meetings.
The amusing clip sees the Conchords interview a hoard of children so that they can connect with the infants and write an authentic song. Their lyrics are comprised of the answers from the kids to such questions as how does the economy work and what ways can people raise money for charity.
Flight of the Conchords produced two seasons of their critically acclaimed, eponymously named HBO comedy, which the performers created alongside James Bobin before deciding not to return for a third series.
Yet it has still maintained a cult and loyal audience, and the twosomehave toured the world and played such hits as “Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros” and “Leggy Blonde” to fervent crowds.
