Flight of the Conchords: the Bowie Episode

The jury's still way out on Flight of the Conchords. I liked the first couple of episodes OK, but lost interest pretty quickly, especially with the whole moving back the US thing. I had other things on my mind besides TV (shocking!). But I happened to catch the episode where one of the characters, Bret (half of the New Zealand folk duo on whose fictional lives the show is based), is having body image issues, and gets visited by David Bowie in his dreams who gives him deliciously cryptic advice. Bowie is expertly played by the actor who plays Jermaine, the other half of the duo. Behold:

Deliciously freaky, man.

The dude who plays "Jermaine" (sic) [it's really Jemaine] is actually named Jemaine and so it might be slightly more accurate to just say that "Bowie is expertly played by Jemaine" instead. Bret and Jemaine are playing rather exaggerated versions of themselves.
