Breck and Charmaine and they too are a singing duo and they look and act just like Bret and Jermaine only they have gigs. They also have one stalker outside who has to share the sidewalk with Mel. Because they have gigs, they end up getting a tour and moving away much to Murray's surprise (he thinks they're lying). FOTC take them on one double date but I can't decide if it would be more funny if they dated "themselves" or the other.
I love it! Very clever. The one I came up with also involves another band, but I tried to avoid the dating theme. Hereâ€™s mine:
Feeling under appreciated, Mel abandons the band in hopes of becoming the #1 fan of the more popular Kiwi folk parody duo Knights of the Concourse (played by Samuel Flynn Scott and Luke Buda of The Phoenix Foundation). Murray is distraught by this and insists that the Conchords engage in a battle of the bands with their rivals in an effort to win Mel back. A fierce musical combat between the two bands ensues. At the very last minute, our heroes are victorious and Mel's devotion is secured once more, causing the Conchords to immediately start avoiding her again.
Sub plot: After an odd encounter with a mysterious customer inquiring about the DG-20, Dave becomes convinced that the instrument really is from the future.
And I just realized that I've thought about this waaaaay too much.
I love that idea as well. The mysterious customer would be fun to cast... Speaking of thinking about this way too much....I went to ebay to see what the prices of the DG-20 were doing and sure enough they are skyrocketing. (...but then again, the long-term devout here probably already knew that!
). It's a fun show to think about because to us Americans, their tone and temperment and humor is very fresh. I really like that "inside" kiwi jokes are in the script. I'm not a big believer in dumbing down regional or cultural differences to cater to any specific audience. It's much more fun to try and learn the inside scoop.
Would they be considered typical Kiwi men in terms of their even personalities and in that they're not particularly emotional or demonstrative?
The thing about the J-dog is you can't put a leash on the J-dog.
