When you are too fast in interacting with SO, a captcha request appears, together with a photo of two gentlemen dressed as robots.

Who are they ?

I just searched like the first 20 pages of "two robots" :) Nothing. –  Jonathan Sampson Jul 31 '09 at 1:10

I think Jermaine is the Pusher and Bret is the Shover. –  Nosredna Jul 31 '09 at 3:04

you know you can CLICK THE IMAGE to have all be revealed, right? Not like it's some massively hidden secret. –  Jeff Atwood Jul 31 '09 at 7:08

@Jeff: When I am asked for a captcha, my robotic nature forces me to obey the order of solving it. I don't investigate further. –  Stefano Borini Jul 31 '09 at 11:54

@Jeff: let's not go philosophical now ;) –  Stefano Borini Jul 31 '09 at 21:20

It's Jemaine and Bret from Flight of the Conchords. Specifically, the episode called Sally. Here's the video.

+1 for providing the video –  Stefano Borini Jul 31 '09 at 1:26
    
Do they know they're famous now? –  John Saunders Jul 31 '09 at 2:11
    
More importantly, how will Murray screw this over? –  random Jul 31 '09 at 2:24
    
@John, wouldn't that involve them not being famous to begin with? I mean they have a TV show... –  Ian Elliott Jul 31 '09 at 4:50

@Jeff: I hope you've learned a little something about UI usability from this: people clearly don't know that images are links unless they have a blue border. –  Hilarious Comedy Pesto Jul 31 '09 at 16:12

Feature request: Make it obvious that robot picture is an HTML link. –  Nosredna Aug 4 '09 at 15:21

They remind me of the Flight of the Conchords...Jemaine and Bret.

I guess that if life was a D&D campaign, this would be a 20 in bardic lore. –  Stefano Borini Jul 31 '09 at 1:27

@Ian: Actually, they're Jemaine and Bret. No 'r'. –  Hilarious Comedy Pesto Jul 31 '09 at 12:44

I'm just sorry it's not Jeff and Joel.
