I realize “Manekineko Duck No Uta” is nothing more than a way for an insurance company to peddle product, but that small fact isn’t going to stop me from writing even more about the left-field hit of Japan for 2009. To keep the song fresh heading into the holiday season, the folks behind this cutesy jingle went and recorded a Christmas version of the song, slowing the overall pace down and making it a bit more carol-like. Plus, the duck-cat is wearing a Santa outfit now.
To watch the video and hear the new song, head on over to the official Manekineko Duck website, which will also blow your mind away with sickening cuteness. Click on “CM” and enjoy watching a duck and cat fly a sleigh!
