Wednesday Afternoon Videos
Kinda like Friday Night Videos, but more Scooby Doo Mansionesque.
Video #1 is "Most Beautiful Girl in the Room" from Flight of the Conchords. Turn up the volume, you're gonna want to hear the lyrics. I hope Prince covers this song someday.
Video #2 is just for you, Admiral Nelson. Enjoy, you crazy bastard.
