The comedy duo behind Flight of the Conchords, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, have released a new single on iTunes to help raise money for children suffering from a life-threatening illness. The song was part of a Cure Kids' Red Nose Day comedy event that took place on August 24 in New Zealand.
The song, "Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)" draws on McKenzie's and Clement's inspiration after sitting down with a group of quick-witted rhyming children, including some from the Clyde Quay School in their hometown, Wellington.
Printz Boar, writer and producer for the Black Eyed Peas, and hip-hop and reggae artist Che Fu's six-year-old son also helped out with the collaboration. According to TV3 in NZ, the other artists in the video include Dave Dobbyn, Brooke Fraser, Boh Runga, Sam Scott, Luke Buda, Savage, Young Sid, Tyree, Deach, PNC, Zowie, Ruby Frost, Kids of 88, Rikki Morris, Moana Maniapoto, Nathan King, Maitereya, Victoria Girling-Butcher, Elizabeth Marvelly, Peter Urlich and Cherie Mathieson.
The song was televised and performed live by the Flight of the Concords on "Red Nose Day: Comedy for Cure Kids'' and helped to raise $1.3 million for medical research into life-threatening illnesses that affect children in New Zealand.
Though the comedy event is over, the song is still available for purchase on iTunes.
