New Flight of the Conchords Video - Ladies of the World
OK so the song (from their recently released self-titled album - which is good and all, it's just that the only new song is 22 seconds long...) isn't new, but the video is (as in, it's not taken from the TV show). And Jemaine has a lovely moustache. Which is nice, isn't it?
The best bit is the post-fade-out bit, where they're gently ascending heaven-wards, by the power of their own arms. Jemaine uses the side-bits of his jacket to assist in the flapping motion.
On the subject of post-fade-out-fade-in- and-then-out-again bits - umm, so what's the deal with them anyways? Is it some kinda 'hold on, you thought this song was over, BUT IT'S NOT!!!! hahahaha' thing? I don't really understand. Any elucidation would be welcome.
The only other two I know of are these, and as far as I'm aware, the second is deliberately referencing the first. I'm pretty sure the Conchords aren't aping Morrissey and Marr though, despite the plethora of reference-points in the rest of their repertoire (Bowie, Pet Shop Boys, Daft Punk).
