Flight of the Conchords Lip-Sync
HBO is looking for real people to videotape themselves lip synching to âHiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenocerosâ for possible exhibition on various television, internet and new media sites. If your video is selected, HBO will pay each individual $200 for the unlimited right to exploit it in connection with Flight of the Concords, and you will be required to sign a release to that effect. Again, HBO is looking for real people (preferably bona fide fans of Flight of the Concords) to create home-style videos of themselves, not professional actors performing in professional-quality productions.
EACH OF THE VIDEOS MUST FALL INTO ONE OF THE TEN CATEGORIES LISTED BELOW: VIDEOS MUST BE RECEIVED BY WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 15TH!
TWO GUYS- 16-25 years old. Any ethnicity, Classic FoTC /YouTube user demographic.
GUY AND GIRL- 16-25 years old. Any ethnicity, Classic FoTC /YouTube user demographic

In these videos, the more choreography and more accurate lip-sync the better. We encourage people to use props such as Jemaine glasses or anything else they can think of that relates to the show and/or particular songs. Creative wardrobe choices are also encouraged, whether they be coordinated with each other in the group settings or simply chosen to resemble Bretâs and Jemaineâs clothing. Back yards and front porches are also acceptable settings in addition to bedrooms, living rooms and rec. rooms.
You may either EMAIL YOUR VIDEO to firstname.lastname@example.org or send a hard copy DVD to:
