Christmas Koi Dance

The U.S. diplomatic mission to Japan, led by ambassador Caroline Kennedy, made a video Christmas greeting. Participants include the staff from the offices in Tokyo, Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka, Fukuoka, and Naha. They are performing the Koi Dance (Love Dance) as performed on Hoshino Gen's TV show Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu, the hottest show of the year.

Bonus: Here's Ambassador Kennedy's personal Christmas video.

This is the "Koi Dance," but the show is not called "Koi." The show is “Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu” which, roughly translated, means "It's shameful to run away but it can be useful."

Thanks, Jimichan! I'll get that corrected.
