Here, he chose to jump out of the vehicle and into the shop to steal a bottle of wine, the local online Hibinform .ru reports. I had to laugh when it was pointed out that the shop was not licensed to sell alcohol at the time of the accident.

Taped live in front of a sold-out crowd in London, the musical comedy duo will perform new original songs, as well as classics fans love to this day. Two years later, they debuted their original series Flight of the Conchords, in which they played fictional versions of themselves.

The show was well received, being nominated for 10 Emmy Awards, and also featured Rhys Darby, Kristen Schaal and Arj Barker. The series was praised by critics and beloved by fans, turning the cult favorites into an global sensation. Clement's credits include the Rio movies while McKenzie was the music supervisor for The Muppets. Good one Bret. The comedy special will be directed by Hamish Hamilton.
