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 bet it was a random picture from Google Images. – Tyler Carter Jul 31 '09 at 1:05

    I just searched like the first 20 pages of "two robots" :) Nothing. – 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

    Yeah, who's the robot now?! – Jeff Atwood Jul 31 '09 at 13:56
  • @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.

I think they might be Daft Punk
