On a recent lengthy roadtrip it became apparent to the inmates of the vehicle, that almost any conversation could (and would) eventually lead us back to The Flight of the Conchords.
It soon became a game that I thought I might share.
Someone would name a famous person and the game was to connect them to Bret and Jemaine in the fewest number of connections. Our rules were similar to "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" - the connecting people had to have worked together, be related to one another, or have been linked romantically. It will be almost too easy with google, Wiki and IMDb at your fingertips (we had no such luxury) so you might try
to resist just for fun.
Type the name of the person you are linking to FotC along with the number of connections, then if you would please put your connections under a spoiler tag then anyone who might like to attempt that particular string may do so.
Example: (Don't click on the black box yet)
Ben Affleck - 4Ben Affleck/Jennifer Lopez - romantically linked
Jennifer Lopez/Steven Tyler - costars on American Idol
Steven Tyler/Liv Tyler - father/daughter
Liv Tyler/Bret McKenzie - costars ( ) The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King
Anyone that would like to give Ben Affleck a try, have at it before you take a look at my string! See if you can beat 4 connections even!
You can play it straight or be a bit silly...even use photos if you feel inclined. There are no wrong answers, though you may get called out if your connection is a bit too weak.
A few other suggestions to get us started:
Those were a few we had real fun with in the car...Try them all if you like. (I want to see who can beat mine)
Feel free to throw out famous names of your own for others to attempt.
Ha! Someone in our car threw out Will Smith as a target thinking it would be tough.
Will Smith - 1 Will Smith/Jemaine Clement - costars MIB 3
Anyone want to play?
