Flight Of The Conchords Return With Charity Song For Kids

Flight of the Conchords did not return to HBO’s programming after its second season, but recent rumors of a potential 2012 reunion tour have brought fans a little hope. Now, Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie have joined together to produce “Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That),” a new song created to help a New Zealand charity focusing on research for kids to raise money.
The duo first met up with some New Zealand kids to get some perspective on how to write a good song for charity. The video’s pretty cute, with McKenzie and Clement egging on the little boys and girls to get them to say funny stuff about everything from the banking system to The Muppets soundtrack. To create the song, the band put together the kids comments to create a full-length track. In the video, the two band members are joined by a slew of other New Zealand artists, whose names probably won’t be recognizable, but do include Luke Buda, Young Sid, and Ruby Frost.
It’s not the greatest or funniest video that Flight of the Conchords have ever put together, but it is a nice little song and proceeds will go to Cure Kids, which is kind of like St. Jude in the States, focusing research on finding cures for everything from cancers to cystic fibrosis. If you want to buy a copy of the song and give a little to the kids in New Zealand, The Huffington Post is reporting iTunes is there to help the transaction go more smoothly.
