NZ Rocks with Rhys!

Postby Great H » Mon Jun 29, 2009 11:13 pm

Lately Rhys has been popping up in hilarious adverts on NZ TV promo-ing a new doco he's is fronting for C4 - actually it looks really good, I can't wait, lots of kiwi cultural *cough* goodness! (Stubbies get a mention!) Anyways, I thought I'd share this article I spotted in TV guide even though most of you probably won't have the opportunity to see the show, cos Rhys is just so adorably ridiculous in it!. Plus, it gives us the name of his next film for us to look out for, AND a very interesting wee tidbit about potential FOTC series 3... :pray:

I get to see him in LA in 3 weeks!

"Thank God, I'm a hottie", I thought.


Well I was sipping martinis by the pool in LA when I first got the call. The first call was a wrong number...


:lol:

Rhys is so funny! Thanks for sharing.

I almost forgot someone else from the board was going too. I remember you said you'd be there with your family but if you want to meet up before or after the show, I'll PM you my number when the date gets closer. I'll be there with my sister. :D

1) I'd like to see Rocked the Nation
and 2) HBO is pretty much doing the same thing pro sports teams do when their star players are up for free agency - they're negotiating in the media.

Rhys is hilarious!

Update: Our boys made no. 24 on the top 100 NZ pop-culture phenomenons! (Not bad considering the list covers the last 35 years or so eh?) After they aired that particular spot Rhys pretended to call Jemaine saying something like 'yeah, 24 I think. I know, I know, nothing I could do about it. I would've thought top 10 at least!" :lol:

A book of the 'Rocked the Nation' TV series is coming out in November apparently, with an introduction written by Rhys (since he presented the show on TV). I sometimes do book reviews for the magazine I work for and I've requested an early print of this book to review. I'll make sure to scan the Conchords page when I get my grubby little hands on it! :cheer: (And I might have to order a copy of the book for myself too if it turns out to be as interesting as the TV show) :D
