Not quite themselves

Flight of the Conchords’ stars Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie will make a guest appearance on hit show The Simpsons in the first episode of the new season, Elementary School Musical, to be broadcast in the US on September 26. Stars from American television show Glee will also feature. “We don’t play ourselves, because most people won’t know who we are, but they’ll look like yellow versions of ourselves,” Clement told the Guardian. “We play counsellors at an arts camp that Lisa’s going to.” The episode will air on New Zealand screens next year.
