Alternative opening credits

Postby Whambi » Fri Jun 05, 2009 10:15 pm

I couldn't find a thread about this....
I happened to be looking at a this promo DVD I got with something else I bought on ebay a long time ago and noticed it had a different opening sequence for the show. I kind of like the head bobbing and the eating of all of the samples at the deli (the last part reminds me of the samples at Costco on a Saturday....total free for all)

That was my first introduction to Flight of the Conchords and for that reason, it will forever hold a special place in my heart.

They're both funny...I just miss the dancing salt and pepper shakers. :(

Nice find, Whambi! I'd never seen that before! Gotta love the teaser though, I remember when I first saw that, I thought that it perfectly described their kind of comedy, all in a single take with no words uttered. Classic Conchords. But about the original post, I love the head bobbing on the street, and then they both look to the left, that's brilliant. I wish they'd used it!

I prefer the version we got - it gets the "loser band" point across but it's a little more lively and animated.

This is a "the grass is always greener" situation, methinks.

The original opening credits were used only for first episode when it aired online before it appeared on HBO TV. By the time it aired on TV the first time, the episode had different credits and also a few changes to the actual episode iirc.

I do have both these on the site somewhere. I think even available to download in better quality.

Ardy-I'd never seen the version you posted. THANKS!

Sherry, let us know where to find those for download if you can recall, please. I would search myself, but am not quite sure how to do it. :(

Yeah I'd like a better quality version of the original opening. I like it better than the opening they ended up going with.
