While researching an article in Maxim for today, now tomorrow’s post, my eyes were immediately drawn to this photo.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I am a big fan of the breakout HBO series Flight of the Conchords and their “folk-parody”.
Jermaine Clement (34) the hunk of burnin’ love to the left and his fellow Kiwi band mate Bret McKenzie (31) met at Victoria University where they later dropped out of school. Prior to their breakout success, Clement who studied theater and film, was the voice of Outback Steakhouse. McKenzie a former music and engineering student, won followers as an extra in the Lord of the Rings series.
Now, they have become stars and in the most recent issue of Maxim, the magazine explores the unlikely sex symbols success and the pressures that ensue with fame.
I doubt whether this issue weighs on the guys minds presently, considering they are slated for a second season of their HBO hit series and will be releasing a new CD on May 12 (according to NME.com). Their first full length album is set to include 14 songs including the two songs I featured in my last post; ‘Business Time’ and ‘Hiphoppotamus vs Rhymenoceros’.
Check out this behind the scenes video from their Maxim photo shoot and their silly “mustachioed guitar faces”.
