Where have Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie been?
Oh, just hanging out with and saving the lives of kids in New Zealand.
The duo behind the comedy-rock group (and the HBO show of the same name) teamed up with some smart (if fiscally naive) children to come up with the lyrics for a new charity single for Red Nose Day Comedy for Cure Kids. Putting the song together was a process involving intense interviewing, with questions including how the economy works (a cycle of cash that goes from banks to Queen to Prime Minister to banks again) and how they could raise money for the charity.
Suggestions range from stealing it from robbers to saving the Tooth Fairy’s donations (and inducing parents to have more kids, so that there are more teeth to cash in).
The goal? $1,000,031, so they can fill a house with money.
