The Flight Of The Conchords And The Muppets ...

Flight of the Conchords is a New Zealand-based comedy duo composed of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. The duo's comedy and music became the basis of a BBC radio series and then an American television series, which premiered in 2007 on HBO, also called Flight of the Conchords.

They are funny as hell ...

After their show went off the air, the duo unofficially went their separate ways to pursue solo projects. Jemaine Clement has been in a number of films, most notably as the bad guy in the somehow not terrible Men in Black 3 and plays the villain in both of the Rio animated films.

Bret McKenzie served as music supervisor for previous two Muppet films. In fact, he actually won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for the song "Man or Muppet" from the first film ...

The sequel came out earlier this year. Although it wasn't as big a financial success as the first film, the film received positive reviews from film critics and was just featured in The Onion AV Club's list of The best films of 2014 (so far).

Also, the music of Muppets Most Wanted is EXTRRRRREMELY Conchord-ian.

See, the song "Man or Muppet" might have seemed like a funny song to most but, as a FOTC fan, it sounded like probably the closest I would ever get to hearing brand new Flight of the Conchords music. It's basically a brand new Flight of the Conchords song but written for the Muppets.

And this new Muppet movie brought even MORE new Conchords music in Muppet form.

And no song in the new movie sounds more like a Flight of the Conchords song than this one ...

Here's the song ...

Constantine: Anything You Want


Don't say I never did anything for you.
