I found these clips of the guys from 2000 ish. One of their first, if not their first, televised performances. It's really cute - they look so young, and you can tell they're just starting out :) Anyway, it's from a show from Wellington (no longer on the air) called "Newtown Salad"

Thanks for posting these!

I've seen a few of these before except for Bowie's In Space. And I haven't watched them together as a complete set. They both look so skinny! Bret seemed to exaggerate the lyrics and his facial expressions a bit more back then. I know we all enjoy watching the old videos but I wonder if they ever look back on it and think, "Why, god..why???"

I tried to look to see if they were posted - maybe I didn't look back far enough? Jem looks much more awkward in front of the camera.

Aww, kelly - they are cute, aren't they? Bret looks barely legal :worry: (Bet they make the guys cringe a bit, now though :doh: :oops: :lol: )

I'd seen them before, but can't remember whether it was on here or from other internet stalking. But thanks for the reminder about them just now - it's great to see them and contrast with the clips from the current tour :shock: Pretty radically different... but those are still the same guys, all right.

Thanks, Kelly! I'd only seen the Bowie one before-so this was a treat, indeed.
My but hasn't their stage presence improved! :)

Oh wow :shock:
those videos are amazing! so young! so skinny! :lol:
I actually find them really hard to watch though. I feel like a mum watching their kid perform in front of people for the first time :oops:

I'd seen them all except Hotties, can't remember where. Thanks for the links, Kelly! These are neat to see......Bret went to town on that kazoo! :)

Jemaine looks the same, just bit more filled-out and those glasses did him no justice at the time. And in Petrov, he sounds like Dracula- I love it!

Bret? Aw, he has such a baby face! He needs the facial hair, imo. But when he's 70 he'll probably only look 40. :D

I really love how Jemaine just broke out in a grin during funny bits... :lol: It's harder to catch that now, he's far too good at keeping a straight face.

That's funny Carol- I just had my husband in here to watch Bowie and show him how young they are here, and we both noticed how much more smiley he was then. :D

He is difinately much more did-pan these days.
I like to think he's still just as smiley on the inside though :D
