Yes! Sheeple! We want sheeple! Merchandising people look here at fans who want to buy sheeple!!!

I would really love sheeple.
In case there was any doubt.
I think they would be the most perfect FotC merchandise ever.


I'm sorry for being really dense - but what is this "sheeple" of which you speak? :hrm:

But if you did I'd hold you tight / Into every single night
And we'd fall asleep together / And we'd wake up in the sunlight
Well, maybe I'm a dreamer / But maybe one day you'll see / That dreams are...

Bumper Stickers.....or at least some kind of stickers. They had a nice promotional one from their album last year.
something cryptic that you could put on your car that only other fans would recognize like the DG-20 or a hair helmet

I am a big fan of cryptic bumper stickers. I saw one on Cafe Press around Christmastime that said "Hey man, I just want some muesli". I went back to get it a few weeks later and it was gone.

I used to have one on my old car that said "The tires are the things on your car that make contact with the road". It's from a Phish song. I used to really enjoy the puzzled looks that sticker used to cause.

My favorite bumper sticker of all time is "Imagine Whirled Peas"

Every time I see the Jemaine sheeple I internally chuckle over his browness & marvel at the Bret sheeple's likeness to the real deal.

And hell no I'm not upgrading my photobucket account. :hrmpf: Ya'll just have to wait to see my fancy gifs until after the 8th o' the month.

I was wondering what was up with the loss of the gifs.

I miss them already :(

I really wish I knew how to make them - I'm dying to have a gif of Jemaine getting hit in the face with the sandwich from "Yoko"...

1) Clearly, they need to sell white t-shirts with "Flight of the Conchords" handwritten by Jemaine (as seen in season 2, ep 1).

I made some in Movie Maker but it's tedious, the quality isn't great and they move slow as sh*t. Others make them much better than me so I appropriate them.

You guys are so sweet...... ^______^


in reference to this comment....

And chickenkarma should get royalties.

actually the royalties would have to go to this awesome lady for creating the pattern.
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=19921186

The only original thing that I did was the embroidery work on Bret's beard, the addition of Jem's glasses (made out of a paperclip) and their little clay instruments.

Other than that, all credit goes to the woman who sold me the pattern on etsy.

Which brings me to another thing...
because of the fact that the pattern is available to buy online, anyone who want's a sheeple to call their own can easily make them :)

All you really need is some yarn, a crochet hook, and some doll eyes. With just a few youtube tutorials it's really not that hard to make ^_~

youtube has a bunch of tutorials but there is also this great site that has a bunch of them too and they are all nice and organized. http://www.nexstitch.com/v_crochet_videos.html

With some practice you can get your own sheeple going :D
