Male friendships are funny things. Men want to help their mates when they’re down, but since they’re not used to expressing their feelings it tends to be a little … well … awkward. However, it’s rarely as excruciatingly funny as this video from Flight of the Conchords.
In it, Jermaine does his best to cheer Brett up with a song. Jermaine’s ditty works hard to boost Brett’s self esteem, but it’s difficult to tell your friend they’re great without sounding a little gay!
It starts out a little inept, and as it progresses becomes downright uncomfortable. I’m not sure whether it cheered up Brett, but it definitely made me feel better!
