Hiphopopotamus vs Rhymenocerous

In anticipation of the release of the long-awaited Flight of the Conchords full-length cd, I thought I'd share the video for "Hiphopopotamus vs Rhymenocerous," a song that for weeks now I haven't been able to get out of my head. Like a lot of the best Flight of the Conchords songs, the music is actually deceptively pretty good and strikes just the right note of "white guy hop-hop" without actually looking down their nose at the genre (no human beat-boxes, for example).

Yeesh, three YouTube clips in a week? Does this mean I'm shifting from a Slate shill to a YouTube shill?

I showed my dad this video last time i was home, along with the one they filmed in the distant future. He loved them both, but not as much as he loves what he says is the pinnacle of the internet, which is a video of an adorable baby farting:

I only did that because i couldn't find the video he likes, so i thought i should put something there. Seriously, he is like rolling on the floor every time he watches that baby fart. Oh, found it! Here it is for real:

PS now i feel like the girl who cried wolf. srsly, that's a real link.
