Flight of the Conchords

Flight of the Conchords is a Grammy Award-winning New Zealand comedy duo composed of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. Billing themselves as "Formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo", the group uses a combination of witty observation, characterisation and acoustic folk guitars to work the audience. The duo's comedy and music became first the basis of a BBC radio series and then an American television series, which premiered in 2007, also called Flight of the Conchords (yea, I stole that from Wikipedia, I'm lazy and it's accurate enough so deal with it). Anyway, check out the show on HBO it's pretty hilarious, and I just recently snagged a copy of their album thanks to my brother, who insists "Businesstime" is the greatest song ever written (he lacks what most would refer to as maturity, although it is pretty funny I have to admit). So check out the video below for "The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room". and maybe when you're plastered enough you'll remember one of the lines he spits out and actually use it on a real life girl (also enjoy the mp3s posted below the video)!
