Video: The Rhymenoceros and the Hiphopopotamus – a modern fable

Flight of the Conchords, the musico-comedy television series voted most likely to have links to YouTube clips IM’d to me, brings us both the Hiphopopotamus and the Rhymenoceros – both worthy of our attention.

Ginormous ups to YouTube uploader r8dkid for including the lyrics in their entirety. A highlight:
Yes, sometimes my lyrics are sexist
But you lovely bitches and hoes should know I’m trying to correct this.

The end.

Video: A robot version of a Patsy Cline tune

Theremin plays Patsy Cline’s “Crazy.” Take that, Gnarls.

(BTW: Cee-lo is to Gnarls what Darius was to Hootie.)

Also, love this YouTube comment: “You win at life, that’s all there is to it. Fucking A, man, fucking A.” Amen, radiofan6872.
