Bowie’s in Space

  • SumoMe

It’s a sin to leave out New Zealand’s Flight of the Conchords in a month where we’re turning up the speakers and bringing in everything related to arts (even the skewed kinds). And when you’re this good, it’s hard to choose a piece amongst so many incredible songs, rhymes and raps. But all is not lost! We’ve already featured The Humans Are Dead and today, we bring you Bowie.

“Bowie” (a.k.a “Bowie’s in Space”) begins after Bret’s last dream encounter with David Bowie. It is a parody of the many musical styles and visual aesthetics that Bowie has used in his career. The video mimics, in particular, elements of the videos for “Space Oddity” and “Rebel Rebel“. During the credits the second part of the video mimics Bowie’s song “Let’s Dance“. – Flight of the Conchords on HBO

Bowie’s in space
What you doing out there, man?
That’s pretty freaky, Bowie
Isn’t it cold out in space, Bowie?
Do you want to borrow my jumper, Bowie?
Does the space cold make your nipples go pointy, Bowie?
Do you use your pointy nipples as telescopic antennae to transmit data back to Earth?

Get these guys some astroturf.
