New Zealand Invented Hip-hop. No, Really.

Flight of the Conchords prove that it is indisputably so in the clip below. This Kiwi duo pull off the incredibly difficult feat of combining witty humor and good music with understated panache. I've seen them twice and they had me laughing throughout most of their sets, which is rare, because I'm a demanding customer when it comes to comedy.

Unfortunately for those who slept, Conchords' July 11 El Rey show is sold out. But you can peep their EP, The Distant Future, out Aug. 7 on SubPop.
