I think this was last night in LA. Yet they seem to be in NYC today. :puzzled:

Oh & I'd like to add that Jemaine licked his lips 5 times. I counted.

oooohhhh...I didn't catch the lip licking - I was too intrigued by the whacked out lighting - then it got better, then I decided Bret was stoned, then I decided he wasn't because he answered some quistion too succinctly.
Bret: Have been sheared.
Jemaine: Have been shorn.

Hey hey...

The link to the bbc clip doesn't work. Does anyone have another suggestion as to where I can see it? You tube, megavideo.... anything?

I want to see this lip licking that everyone is talking about.

THANK YOU!
xo.

The link I posted is just an article and in the article it says they were in NY as of the day before the article was written.
Bret: Have been sheared.
Jemaine: Have been shorn.

Here's the article:

"They're Thoroughbreds!" Says John Hodgman of Daily Show Writers; Barack, Watch Your Back!
BY REID PILLIFANT | 2:38 PM JANUARY 27, 2009 | TAGS: O2BRET MCKENZIEJEMAINE CLEMENTJOHN HODGMAN

John Hodgman at the Conchords premiere.
At the Lower East Side's Angel Orensanz Center on Monday night for their show's second season premiere, Flight of the Conchords stars Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie seemed prepared to weather the dour economy. "If any show's going to survive, it's going to be us," said Mr. McKenzie, referring to the Conchords' low budget. (Two guitars, several pairs of corduroy pants ...)
"Ours might be the only one left," said Mr. Clement.
Are the Internet sensations more popular here or back home in New Zealand, the Daily Transom wondered?
"We're famous in New Zealand for being famous in the States," said Mr. Clement. "We're known as the guys who are famous over here."
Like good New Zealanders, they boycotted the Australia movie, and hatched their own plans for a follow-up: New Zealand. "It'll be an epic love story set [there]," said executive producer James Bobin.
"I've heard of angry Australians being mistaken for New Zealanders. And that's entirely due to our show," said Mr. Clement. He was dressed for a recession in a vintage brown suit, and a striped blue and white shirt with bulky brown buttons. "This was 10 American dollars," he said, tugging at the suit, "and this was $10 as well"-indicating the shirt-"so I've got on $20 here."
Bret: Have been sheared.
Jemaine: Have been shorn.
