What's Scott Got To Do With It?

Everything! Scott Van Pelt stole a new catch phrase, and simultaneously launched Flight of the Conchords (New Zealand's fourth most popular digi-folk paradists) into pop-culture relevance! In SportsCenter's "Not Top Ten", Van Pelt referenced the Conchords (not so) famous rap battle seen on HBO (and seen over and over again on HBO On Demand). During a clip of Phillip Wellman's minor league meltdown, Van Pelt quoted Jermaine/The Hiphopopotamus, saying "Be more constructive with your feedback', (Jermaine's response to colleagues who settle for leveling empty critiques on the his work). Despite their new-found fame, the Conchords stay committed to talking about the issue, but keeping it funky.
