Building on last year's efforts, Fly My Pretties 2 is going to be performed in both Wellington and Auckland in late September.

In the age of surveillance, it's reassuring to see that one person hasn't lost their sense of humour. Directed by UK based New Zealand filmmaker Andrew Johnson, and shot on the grey streets of London and Berlin, this is the latest video from The Video Kid's album Prototype. CCTV sees our hero Bret McKenzie putting on a hilarious cabaret for the cameras in our daily lives. Sporting his trademark tracksuits, and 'stunning' dance repertoire, CCTV is classic.

In other Video Kid news, the tune 'Video Kid' has recently featured on the latest Back To Mine compilation by the Pet Shop Boys, and being distributed worldwide.

His album Prototype is in store now!!
