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 www.flightlipdub.com. Then videotape yourself lip-synching the song. Then upload your video to the aforementioned www.flightlipdub.com 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.
