FOTC: Crazy for their Sugar Lumps

While what we've seen so far of Flight of the Conchords' second season isn't quite up to the brilliance of the first, last night's musical entry, "Sugar Lumps," surely curled a few mouths. After Bret unwittingly bankrupts the band, Jemaine thinks they might make good prostitutes, given that "all the ladies go crazy for my sugar lumps." What follows is a lampoon, both musically and lyrically, of the regrettable "My Humps" from The Black Eyed Peas (a song long overdue for mocking), as is the case with these lyrics:

We see ya girls checkin' out our trunks. We see you girls checkin' out the front of our trunks. We see you girls lookin' at our junk, then checkin' out our rumps, then back to our sugar lumps.
Later, Dave (Arj Barker) gets into the action with an early Beastie Boys homage. As good as it (and the episode) was, it is one of only a few bright spots so far this season. Enjoy:
