Frodo is great, sure, but you’re going to want to get your business socks on because Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords has something special for Fair Trade Fortnight. The winning bidder of this auction gets to sit down with Bret for a fair trade cuppa in support of Oxfam’s Biggest Coffee Break *and* walk away with a guitar signed by Bret and Conchords partner Jemaine Clement.

Bret says: “Buying Fairtrade products is a simple way of making the world a better place. So go and buy them now. Stop what you're doing and buy some Fairtrade goods. Stop reading this and go buy something Fairtrade. I said stop reading this. I can't believe you're still reading. Move away from the computer. Stand up. Put some clothes on and go to the shops and get some Fairtrade stuff. What's wrong with you? Why are you still reading this? Are you addicted to reading? Get a friend to help you stop reading. Meet them at a cafe and have a cup of Fairtrade coffee and talk about your reading addiction. Get moving. Hurry, before it's too late to make the world a better place.”

Bret has toured internationally with Flight of the Conchords, gaining worldwide recognition, an HBO television show and a Grammy. He crooned with Kermit and won an Academy Award for his original song “Man or Muppet” at this year’s Oscars.

This auction is part of Oxfam's Biggest Coffee Break and Fair Trade Fortnight 2012. All proceeds support Oxfam’s work with struggling growers in the developing world, helping them to get a fairer and better deal and empowering them to work their way out of poverty.
