On the newest episode of Flight of the Conchords,
Brett and Jemaine write a jingle for Femident, a new brand of
toothpaste that is just for women. True to Conchords form, the song is
cute, funny, and sensitive to a woman’s [dental] needs. Plus, how hilarious are their toothpaste hats?
I think my favorite line is: You’re a woman you have women’s rights, you’re a woman with teeth now take a bite
If you haven’t had a chance to watch this new episode yet, I recommend it. Not only is it entertaining, but the gender discussion is interesting as well. It’s especially funny/interesting to watch Brett and Jemaine attempt to write a jingle just for women, something the Femident representative thinks will be easy for them because, “they’re the feminine guys.”
And how typical is it that an all-male band would be asked to reach out to women and write about women’s hygiene? So funny.
