Hello. I thought the best way to introduce myself and demonstrate how much I love the guys was by sharing this vid my friends and I made with you.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XouFqc2UbiY

We had so much fun making it and were truly inspired to have a go by the guys having seen them in the UK this year.
I hope this is the right place to share it. :)

:welcome: NinjaHels. That video is sweet as! :roll2: You are all adorable! and does someone really play the ukulele? We have a little orchestra going here. :)

"Friends stalk together..." :lol: :thumb:

"Friends take baths together..." No one believes me. :dunno: :wink:

What concert(s) did you attend? Did any of you meet the guys?

Hiya! Thanks for the lovely welcome! We made it as a leaving gift for 2 of the girls (in the vid) as they have gone travelling round the world for a year and it reflects our friendship so well! :) Unfortunately we were miming with the instruments :oops: although i play a little flute and my friend Kaz arranged all the music.

The 4 of us saw Jemaine and Bret at the NIA in Birmingham and were thrilled to be on the 2nd row! I have never laughed so much in my life!!
2 of us were lucky enough to bump into the guys as we came out the car park...we'd tried to go to the stage door but they went out a different one so it was pure luck! Got a couple of great pics with them. :)
Bret thought I said my name was 'Mel' when I introduced myself as 'Hels'. He looked so thrilled I wish I'd played along with it now!
I'll have to work out how to upload pics...although you can imagine how geeky we look in them because we were so thrilled!
I just watched The Simpsons episode online. They totally rocked it!!

:supz: Second row! and all of you together?!?!? That's fantastic! How exciting to travel all over for a year. The memories of making that video will last forever, I'm sure. Someone has some mad recording/editing skills! :prayer:

Uploading pics is mainly a matter of having them the right size, unless you have an online photo storage account like flickr or photobucket. (Can you tell I'm quite anxious to see? :eyelashes: ) Anything I can do to help, just ask.

:rolls:

Were you all, "Oh, Hi guys! Imagine bumping into you here...outside the concert hall..." with an innocent look on your face? :halo: :wink: And don't worry, most of us have "that look" in our pics with the Conchords. :blush:

So, what else did Bret say? :biggrin: This is so exciting!!!

They did, didn't they? 8) I've laughed to myself about bits of it all morning.

Mime uke, huh? :lol: That's how Jemaine started, with the mime guitar! If you ever decide to really learn the uke, it is quite simple and very rewarding! :nod:

Hi NinjaHels,

Welcome to the forum! I just saw your video on Twitter and retweeted you from the What the Folk! twitter account! Just as I was saying on Twitter, excellent job! It must have been really fun making that video. :D

Ooh, you were at the Birmingham show and meet and greet?! I was there too! :supz: Just so that this thread doesn't go massively off-topic, could you post more about your experience and your pics in this thread please: viewtopic.php?f=65&t=3273
Thanks so much! :)

Thank you very much for the link Venus! I'll go tell my tale there. It's so nice to share the story with like-minded people. I'm looking forward to finding my way around this forum and devouring the Conchordy goodness!
I hadn't thought about putting the vid on the Myspace page mohumbhai mania. Thanks. I hope I don't annoy people with it but it seems to have created a monster in me! I'm just so proud of it I want to share it around all over the place! :oops:
Thank you for being so kind about it!

Howdy, Hels! :wave:

Excellent video! It reminded me of old Beatles/Monkees shenanigans.

Now to get this straight, were you the blonde or the brunette with the name over your head? :puzzled:

Hi Nancy! Thank you I'm chuffed you liked the vid!
I'm the blonde... I guess (it's from a bottle!) :lol:

We've made a few vids to entertain our friends and The Monkees were a real influence on us!
