Rap Along With Flight of the Conchords

If, like me, you've got HBO's Flight of the Conchords on the brain these days, here's a funny way to pass the time between now and the show's season two premiere on Jan. 18.

To promote the new season, the Conchords are hosting a "lipdub" contest, encouraging fans to upload videos of themselves lip syncing to "Hiphopopotomas vs. Rhymenoceros." The best of the clips will be edited together into one big masterpiece — excuse me, "fansterpiece" — that will air on HBO.

In order to practice, the Conchords are offering a free mp3 of the song plus the lyrics (both available here). After all, you wouldn't want to trip over lines like "I'm not a large water-dwelling mammal/Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis?"

Once you're happy with your performance, upload the video at the official site. All the submissions can be seen at this YouTube page, and you have till Jan. 25 to submit your own. Ready? To see Kristen Schaal (aka Conchords superfan Mel) explaining the contest, just

Yay :). This show is kind of like Zoolander or Anchorman. You have to see it a few times and start quoting it to your friends for it to really become awesome to you. "I'm baking a lasana for one."

I just emailed this to two of my friends who I got into this show. I NEED to do this.(amloveaffair, I let my Dad borrow the Season One DVD. He's a really young Dad and he's a comedian, so I thought he'd love it. He "did not get it." It's the only time I've ever wondered if he's really my Dad ;) )

I think I'm the only person who hates this show. I watched the first two episodes and it was so annoying.
