I don't know how many of you have seen this, but a friend of mine that I convinced to buy a uke found this on youtube recently. Being Japan is a HUGE part of my life, this is quite funny to me. I guess even if you don't speak Japanese, it's probably funny. Either way, the uke skills in the vids aren't bad either. Anyway, I did a search on the site and didn't find anything other than a thread in the videos section with no comments haha.

The guy who does this's screen name on youtube is kerokerokingDX

Enjoy the videos!! (http://www.youtube.com/user/kerokerokingDX)

On a related side note, I think the rabbit is playing a Kanile'a and the bear is playing a one K Kamaka lol.

Here's my favorite vid!

Mental. In that peculiarly Japanese way. Arguably the best ukulele playing sock puppets have ever done.

Update. They are releasing a CD-DVD combo. Like many of the best jazz albums, it's only available in Japan. I hope they do a tour. I would pay to see them live

Had to bump this thread. I just found them on MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/ukuleleduou900), and it looks like they've got a couple new videos since this was posted.
