Flattered... after a fashion!

The Flight of the Conchords is a strange but hugely praised sitcom I have read about but never seen. The gimmick is that the geeky protagonists burst into song at the drop of a hat. To my absolute astonishment, in the clip embedded below they deliver a persiflage of Space Oddity, the clip which launched David Bowie's career and which I directed back in 1969.

Enjoy... I think...

I'm amazed at their popularity, given that even I, who is used to interpreting the Kiwi accent, sometimes have trouble with understanding what these guys are saying.

They even won a Grammy this year!
