The Japanese word kawai means, roughly translated, “cuteness in perfection”.  This performing group from Japan is called Tempura Kidz, and they’re the heart and soul of  kawai.  Dressed in fantasy costumes that look like Jim Henson himself designed them, these kids sing and dance – with eye-burning perfection – their song Cider Cider.  It’s about having a soda pop at the end of the day with Father as he drinks his beer.  Turn on closed captions for the English translation.

It’s joyful, innocent and completely devoid of hidden meaning or ulterior motivation. And it’s an earworm.
