The "Business Time" Rave

Definitely check this out. It's a video clip of the comedy/musical duo Flight of The Conchords doing their should-have-been-a-smash-hit "Business Time".

It was worth a try anyway. Below you'll find a) My letter that I sent to them on July 7th, and b) What they actually printed.
