Team Ball Player Thing by #KiwisCureBatten feat. FOTC!

Postby Venus » Tue Sep 08, 2015 8:47 pm

There's going to be a new charity single for Cure Kids called "Team Ball Player Thing". Even the 1 minute preview on iTunes is so catchy! :lalala:
Jemaine is credited but Bret must have been involved behind the scenes, like Taika. It's a great Rugby World Cup song cheering the All Blacks on. Can't wait for the video. :D

Pre-order on iTunes: NZ / UK / US

Team Ball Player Thing - Single (feat. Lorde, Kimbra, Brooke Fraser, Gin Wigmore, Broods, Daniel Bedingfield, The Naked and Famous, Sam McCarty, Sahara Adams, Jemaine Clement, Savage, Jon Toogood, Jason Kerrison, Dave Dobbyn, James Reid, Matiu Walters, Dave Baxter, Hollie Smith, Jupiter Project, Boh Runga, K-ONE, Lizzie Marvelly, Carley Binding, Jesse Griffen, Brooke Howard-Smith, Tom Furniss, Joseph Moore, PNC, Peter Urlich & Julia Deans)

Team Ball Player Thing Video

Postby LauraK » Wed Sep 16, 2015 12:35 am

This was made to raise money and awareness for Batten Disease. Taika posted this on his FB and it's wonderful and hilarious. It harkens back to what Bret and Jemaine did with the kids a few years back with Feel Inside (and Stuff Like That.)

So many people involved... :D
"The song is officially credited as featuring Lorde, Kimbra, Brooke Fraser, Gin Wigmore, Broods, Daniel Bedingfield, The Naked and Famous, Sam McCarthy, Sahara Adams, Jemaine Clement, Savage, Jon Toogood, Jason Kerrison, Dave Dobbyn, Matiu Walters, Dave Baxter, Hollie Smith, Jupiter Project, Boh Runga, Jamie Curry, K.One, Lizzie Marvelly, Carly Binding, Jesse Griffin, Brooke Howard-Smith, Tom Furniss, Joseph Moore, PNC, Peter Urlich and Julia Deans. The music video features these and other artists, as well as New Zealand actors, comedians and rugby players."


The whole thing is great- you really should watch from start to finish- but if you want to skip to Jemaine and then Bret, go to about 7:30. :) Rhys is fantastic, lol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wwraWS6AHdg

A bit more about it. http://m.nzherald.co.nz/entertainment/n ... d=11510729

*If this should be elsewhere, by all means...I wasn't sure who had more involvement between Taika, Bret, and Jemaine!* :)

I loved seeing Bret! My fav bit though was at 2:25 when Taika says "Ham". I die laughing every time.

I bought the single and am a proud supporter. Why don't more countries do this?

Just merged your posts into this topic, Laura. :)

Loved seeing Rhys in this too, giving a rousing speech. "Are my ears conceiving me?" :lol:

Interesting to read what was going on behind the scenes with Bret in LA and Jemaine in Washington
