Flight of the Conchords

Sadly, the Emmy nominated HBO show "Flight of the Conchords" will not be returning for a third season. Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie were the stars of the show, which follows their hilarious and fictitious lives as they try to gain success as a band in NYC. While the two are a highly successful, Grammy-winning, New Zealand comedy duo in real life, their popularity is not reflected on the show, on which they sing ridiculous and strangely catchy songs such as "The Humans are Dead" (where they dress up as robots and sing in binary) and "Foux de Fa Fa" (during which they call out random French vocabulary).

I watched the first season a while ago, but I only recently started watching the music videos from the second season. This one is one of my favorites. The dancing is on point, and you can't beat the lyrics of the bridge:

My sugar lumps are two of a kind
Sweet and white and highly refined
Honeys try all kinds of tomfoolery
To steal a feel of my family jewelry
My cannonballs cause a kerfuffle
The ladies they hustle to ruffle my truffles
If you party with the Party Prince
You get two complimentary after-dinner mints!
