When parents upload videos of their children online, sometimes it is cute, while other times it is not. In those cases where it is not cute, a child looks lost and awkward while obviously being directed by his parents off camera. But those other times when it is cute, the child is a ham for the camera and comes off with a certain charm about him. The five year old Japanese boy with a ukulele falls under the category of the latter. His videos have been making their rounds on the internet since late last year, and he has garnered a small cult following. That is not surprising find out. Whenever I watch his videos, I have a huge smile on my face.
It is insane to think that he has only been playing the ukulele for only a few months. This kid is something else.
Listen to him mumbling the lyrics to “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz.
My. Heart. Just. Melted.
