FOTC: Phones 4U

Banter about the rhythm of the movement of the feel of the melody of the rhythm of the feeling of Bret and Jemaine's music. Here you will find the largest known collection of Conchords lyrics and chords.

I stumbled across this today and couldn't remember having seen it on the boards before.

They are in rare form here, promoting a phone service in the UK, from what I can tell. Enjoy!

the sound quality is not fantastic, unfortunately, but it's still worth a looksie

I remember when this advert was on telly years ago - it used to annoy me actually :(
But hey, I was young and naive and Bret had that tight beanie hat on so what'dya expect?
The car drives past the Angel of the North - thats right near me!!! Do you think they would have actually been inside it?

Woo, i'm the chap who uploaded it. I recorded it and sent it to like all the people who had uploaded bad quality versions and told them to do that one instead. None of them even replyed so i just made a new account and did it myself. *Shrug*

Yes, thanks so much, Rory!! :D :D :D

I meant to leave a 'thank you' comment on it yesterday, but was in a bit of a rush (but had to post it here anyway!). Rest assured, I did give it 5 stars and favorited it, though. ;D *going to thank now*

Your all very welcome guys! I love FOTC obviously, seen all the episodes, got the DVD, know the songs yada yada. Guessing your all still out of my league though in terms of fandom!
Was going to try and get a SECOND advert by FOTC for phones 4 u up aswell, apperently they are in an airplane! But the site i captured that advert from requires a membership to see that advert, apperently its THAT good.

Says: Two guys are freezing in the cockpit of a plane.
And this is the preview picture it gives:

Also says 'Actors: Unknown' PRFT

Thanks Rory!!!!!!!!!

I used to love this advert when it was on, well before I was aware of who FOTC were :D.
I remember them doing a couple of adverts in the UK I think but don't really remember them being in a plane - would be amazing to see that one.

Also: even though phones 4 u now has a very different advertising stragegy I always sing this song when I walk past the shop (mainly in my head - people would think I was really rather weird otherwise)
