Flight of the Conchords Are Back (And Doing Good!)

Submitted by on August 27, 2012 – 5:00 pmNo Comment

Everyone’s favorite New Zealand comedy folk duo are back! Flight of the Conchords (Jemaine Clement and Brett Mackenzie) have been working on solo projects a lot lately, but joined forces recently to record a song to benefit Red Nose Day, a British organization that uses comedy to raise money for a variety of charities across the UK and Africa.

Before they could write the song, Clement and Mackenzie interviewed schoolchildren about being sick, and how they could raise money to help other kids. Not only are the interviews hilarious, but the Conchords work nearly every suggestion into the final product:

I’m not really familiar with the other artists in the video, but apparently they’re a who’s who of very talented, cool, and charitable New Zealand musicians.

The song is available for purchase at iTunes, with profits going to charity.
