Ruby Isle recruit Flight of the Conchords dog for new video
Ruby Isle, the catchy dance-rock collaboration between Mark Mallman, Dan Geller, and Aaron Lemay, just dropped a new video for one of their Guns 'N Roses covers from their forthcoming record, Appetite for Destruction, and it features a hilarious cameo: Dozer, the dog who belonged to band manager Murray on the show Flight of the Conchords.
After doing a bit of research on Dozer's history, we were sad to learn that the English Bulldog has since passed away, making this Ruby Isle video one of his final appearances. The band posted a farewell on their YouTube page: "RIP Dozer 2010 - the world will miss you!"
Here's one of Dozer's finest moments, barking along to the fake hit "Doggy Bounce" on Flight of the Conchords:
And as a refresher, here's the original version of Guns 'N Roses' "Mr. Brownstone":
Ruby Isle will release Appetite for Destruction on January 29 with a show at the Triple Rock Social Club. When asked what's next for this one-of-a-kind band, Dan Geller answered: "Journey meets Ace of Base."
Here's hoping there's an "I Saw the Sign" cover in their future.
