Day 55 and I’m digging beneath the surface again for some Grammy goodness and what do I discover? I find that one of the funniest sketches to hit the tube in years, in my opinion, was not only nominated for a Grammy but also WON, and these guys are from New Zealand. The Hit Comedy HBO Series, Flight of the Conchords, took home a Grammy in 2007 for the Best Comedy Album for their EP entitled The Distant Future. The video up top is just a sample of some of the spontaneous music videos that they would weave in and out of the dialogue portion of the show at these perfectly timed punch-line setup scenarios during the sketch. Thanks to my man Caferro “Cup o’ Joe-a-Day” Thomas for putting me on to these guys. Definitely worth collecting the box set. You may as well plop on the sofa and get familiar because the humans are dead anyways.
