Kumamushi is a comedy duo.
Made up of Hiroki Sato and Shunsuke Hasegawa.
They wrote a song and did a skit that created this nationwide love of saying “attakaindakara” in a high voice while moving your fists next to your face.
They even made it into a single with a music video in February 2015.
“attakaindakara” literally means “because it’s warm”… but it can mean warm in temperature or in feeling.
It has become super popular.
When I said super popular… I meant that Sekai no Owari have recorded a cover of it and the korean group Big Bang have sung it live.
Fun Fact: Kumamushi is the name for a microscopic animal called “waterbear” in English.
They look quite terrifying but sort of chubby and cute.
