New Flight of the Conchords Song!

Flight Of The Concords - "Feel Inside And Stuff Like That" VideoBret? Present. Jemaine? Present. Murray? Present.  They're all back in this brand new hilarious Flight of the Conchords video.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, Flight of the Conchords, (New Zealand's 4th Most Popular Folk Band), are a comedy folk duo comprised of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie who had an Emmy-nominated comedy series on HBO.  The show featured the pair playing fictionalized versions of themselves, musicians from New Zealand trying to make it big in New York City.  Each episode also featured some comedic original songs, all written by and performed by the Conchords themselves.  The show also features great supporting roles by Rhys Darby (Yes Man) as the band's manager Murray and Kristen Schaal (30 Rock) as the group's only fan.  

After 2 successful seasons on HBO, the pair decided to end the show and they went their separate ways. Jemaine starred in movies such as Dinner for Schmucks and Men in Black 3 while Bret continued songwriting, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Man or Muppet" from The Muppets film.  The pair finally reunited for a tour of New Zealand this year, and they said that they might start writing new songs while on tour together.  And it looks like that's just what they did.

For the New Zealand charity "Cure Kids", the group was commissioned to write a new song to help sick children.  For the first time in 3 years, the band reunites with their old manager Murray, as they try to write a song to help the children.  Seeking inspiration, they decide to talk to some real (unscripted) children (a la the Zach Galafianakis) and the results are expectedly hilarious.  It all leads up to their first new song in 3 years:  "Feel Inside (And Other Stuff)".  Check out the video below!

The song is only available for download on iTunes in New Zealand, but to download it in America (or anywhere else in the world you) you can download it here.  All proceeds go to charity!
