As I was wandering around YouTube today, I came across this video. Bret's bit starts at 1:45 or so and is rather amusing.

I should mention that this video should probably be rated R for adult content, drug use, suggestive dialog and crude language. :purple:



Random. :roll2:

ETA: Ah, here's more of that guy's interview with Bret:

What's the deal with all the bales of straw? :lol: I know the film is a Western but now all I can think of is a tumble in the hay...

It appears that Bret is being video taped and interviewed. I hope we get to see that. Thanks, Venus!!

Yeah, I noticed Bret's hair looking kinda different too.

Bret comments on the hay bales in the interview below. ;) Hope there's more footage of him at the premiere to come:

McKenzie: Embassy like the Oscars

KENT BLECHYNDEN/Fairfax NZ IMPRESSED: Bret McKenzie says the Embassy Theatre in Wellington really put on a good show.

Bret McKenzie is no stranger to the red carpet these days, and he was impressed by the glitz laid on at the Embassy Theatre in Wellington last night for the New Zealand premiere of Good For Nothing.

"Everyone's looking very comfortable doing this red-carpet thing," he said. "This is very similar to the Oscars really. Except there were no hay bales at the Oscars."

The Academy Award winner was among a host of local and international celebrities last night walking the red carpet, which was lined with hay bales in keeping with the spaghetti western theme of the movie.

Good for Nothing is the directorial debut of Kiwi Mike Wallis, who has worked alongside Sir Peter Jackson on The Lord of the Rings, King Kong, and Tintin in the animation department at Weta Digital.

It is understood to be the first western shot in this country and McKenzie said it was great to see film-makers here giving the genre a go. "It could be a new thing - the next Lord of the Rings maybe."

McKenzie said he was enjoying being home in Wellington after soaking up the bright lights of Hollywood at the Academy Awards in February, where he won for Best Original Song.

He was tight-lipped about his future projects, except to say he could not wait to hit the road with his Flight of the Conchords co-star Jemaine Clement in June and reinvigorate the comedy that shot the pair to stardom.

Many of the stars involved in The Hobbit, including British actors Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis, were at the premiere.

Serkis said there was a really great energy among the cast and crew of The Hobbit.

"We're right in the heart of it now, right in the belly of the beast. We're scheduled to finish [filming] in July so there's a light at the end of the tunnel now."

Good For Nothing opens in New Zealand on May 3.

:shock: What I don't get is how those girls could be standing so close and not gazing at him. :dunno: There is one girl who appears to be looking in the direction of the interviewer/camera. We'd be looking at him all googly-eyed :love: :nod: It's not the time or place to disturb him but I wouldn't mind being caught gazing at him. :halo:

Oxfam Coffee Break with Bret McKenzie
Closes: Mon 14 May, 6:48 am

Frodo is great, sure, but you’re going to want to get your business socks on because Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords has something special for Fair Trade Fortnight. The winning bidder of this auction gets to sit down with Bret for a fair trade cuppa in support of Oxfam’s Biggest Coffee Break *and* walk away with a guitar signed by Bret and Conchords partner Jemaine Clement.

Bret says: “Buying Fairtrade products is a simple way of making the world a better place. So go and buy them now. Stop what you're doing and buy some Fairtrade goods. Stop reading this and go buy something Fairtrade. I said stop reading this. I can't believe you're still reading. Move away from the computer. Stand up. Put some clothes on and go to the shops and get some Fairtrade stuff. What's wrong with you? Why are you still reading this? Are you addicted to reading? Get a friend to help you stop reading. Meet them at a cafe and have a cup of Fairtrade coffee and talk about your reading addiction. Get moving. Hurry, before it's too late to make the world a better place.”

Bret has toured internationally with Flight of the Conchords, gaining worldwide recognition, an HBO television show and a Grammy. He crooned with Kermit and won an Academy Award for his original song “Man or Muppet” at this year’s Oscars.

This auction is part of Oxfam's Biggest Coffee Break and Fair Trade Fortnight 2012. All proceeds support Oxfam’s work with struggling growers in the developing world, helping them to get a fairer and better deal and empowering them to work their way out of poverty. Limited hosting packs still available for first 200 new sign ups before May 11th – visit http://www.oxfamcoffeebreak.org.nz for more information.

Your Coffee Break with Bret will take place in Wellington on either May 28, 29, or 30, at a time designated by Bret and organised through Oxfam. Every effort will be made to make this time mutually suitable. Any travel or accommodation costs incurred by the winner are at their own expense.

Source- Place your bid here

Lol at Bret. :lol: What a cool auction. 8)
