After the jump, I’ve got a brand new promotional clip from Gentleman Broncos, starring Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords. To refresh your memory, Gentleman Broncos comes from Jared and Jerusha Hess, the mormon husband and wife filmmaking team behind Napoleon Dynamite. Clement plays Dr. Ronald Chevalier, a fantasy novelist. In this clip, he describes his creative process:
“To inspire myself, I turn to myself, and my own original compositions. This chord conjures up a family of electronic dogs, scavenging for a home. This suggests a planet, with 50 moons. This, an android, who discovers feelings.”
In theory I know I should find this funny, but good god is it dry. It almost makes me wish someone would get hit in the nuts, or a cross-dressing black guy in a fat suit would chase someone around with a rolling pin. Oh lawdy, chile, I done tripped an’ fell on mah sweet potata pie, now mah britches is ruined!
