YouTube Tuesday: We watched it and we wept

My Supermodel Wife and I first saw Flight of the Conchords a couple of years ago when they aired their HBO special.

Then a few months ago, I recognized one of the duo, Jemaine, had become the new spokeskiwi for Outback Steakhouse (hey, at least it's a paying gig).

And then, yesterday I saw a link to a performance of their touching hit single Albi the Racist Dragon and it brought back how funny these guys are.

If you're unfamiliar with FOTC, duo comprised of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement (the Outback Steakhouse guy), they are "New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo."

Watch this video and I think you'll agree that description is spot on. It's long for a YouTube presentation (seven and a half minutes), but the payoff at the end is worth it.

So here it is, Flight of the Conchords performing Jenny.
