Flight of the Conchords is a New Zealand-based comedy duo composed of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. The duo’s comedy and music became the basis of a BBC radio series and then an American television series, which premiered in 2007 on HBO, also called Flight of the Conchords. They used to refer to themselves as “New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”, however now are “the almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand.”

They were named Best Alternative Comedy Act at the 2005 US Comedy Arts Festival and Best Newcomer at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and they received a nomination for the Perrier Comedy Award at the 2003 Edinburgh Festival Fringe for their show at Edinburgh venue The Caves. The duo’s live performances have gained them a worldwide cult following.

“Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros” takes place during the mugging. Jemaine and Bret attempt to fend off the muggers with bluster then launch into a gangsta rap song. It parodies various rap clichés such as references to “bitches” and “hoes”, though in a deliberately tame manner (“there ain’t no party like my nana’s tea party”). The video is filmed using common hip hop music video techniques such as low camera angles and rapid movement of the performers towards and away from the camera.
