Metro exclusive: Rhysently Granted have something to say about jandals - video

Apr 15, 2016 Theatre

Almost 20 years ago Rhysently Granted released their ode to footwear on the unsuspecting public.  No one knows how many people knew the song, there was no YouTube, but tens of fans would turn up in Christchurch and sing along to the chorus.  Almost twenty years later, with a more experienced production crew, and not a VHS recorder in sight, they have re-released the “hit” song.  Metro have it first, exclusively.

Watch the video:

If you fancy seeing Rhysently Granted in their first gig in NZ this century, you can check them out at the NZ International Comedy Festival.  They’re known for their silly sketches, musical comedy (three songs) and surreal comedy.

Rhysently Granted wants to thank Awesomeness International and Cornville for producing this clip.  None of this would have happened without the following people, who are now part of the unofficial Rhysently Granted fan club…

Rosie Carnahan-Darby – Producer
Dean B. Cornish –  Director
Fleur Saville – Producer
Jake Shaver – Editor
Jeff Fuller – Audio Engineer
Laura Bell Bundy – Hot chick

With thanks to Leon Kirkbeck and Michelle Walshe for their support, house, horse and signing up as our first two fans of the 21st Century.

Also thanks to the kids, Finn and Theo Darby, Jarvis, Hudson and Amelie Kirkbeck, may you love your jandals forever…and may you accept disinheritance if you ever call them flip flops, thongs or even slides.
