Flip Yeah! Flight of the Conchords sing for kids

By Huntress Thompson

To help their cause, New Zealand’s Cure Kids (an organisation which invests in children’s health research) enlisted the country’s two most celebrated cultural contributions (after Jonah Lomu’s thighs).

Parody folk superstars Flight of the Conchords (Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement) sat down to interview some kids [why is the word ‘kids’ hilarious in a New Zealand accent?], asking them for advice on lyrics and health issues.

Then they recorded a bit of a song. You can buy Feel Inside (and stuff like that) on iTunes, and the proceeds go to Cure Kids, or you can donate to the organisation directly here.

This was part of the Comedy for Cure Kids initiative held last week which, so far, has raised $1.3 million.

No word yet on whether Murray Hewitt gets 15%.

In the vacuum between dark and light, Siouxsie Sioux and Emmylou Harris, Amelie and Travis Bickle, Huntress Thompson is an idiot lost, and reporting from the field. If you’re after irrational, impassioned rants about cupcakes and Johnny Cash (and you probably aren’t), she’s grumpy, but she’s your girl.
