Sing it loud, sing it proud!

Hey Flight of the Conchords fans, here's a cool new contest to tide people over until the HBO series' second season starts on January 18. As the press release says, "In celebration of this momentous event, Mel -- Bret and Jermaine's (married, obsessive, terrifying) number one superfan -- would like to extend an invitation to all her fellow Conchords fans, an opportunity to video yourself lip-synching to "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros." The winners will be shown on HBO. Yes, you will be on the same channel as Tony Soprano and all the pasta he ate! Here's the Mel video itself:

So, to recap, learn each and every word of "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros" by downloading the official MP3 from Then videotape yourself lip-synching the song. Then upload your video to the aforementioned site. Easy as pie! And if you do a video, be sure to tell us here at The Park Bench so we can check it out.

Haha this is such a great idea. The best one I've seen so far is this one with Kerri Kenney-Silver and David Wain and other comedians. If you haven't seen it yet, you MUST watch. Great entertainment.
