If you'll indulge me, I'd like to tell you a quick story. If not, the bottom of this post has the video you are looking for. My senior year in high school, I befriended a relocated Japanese student. The reason I did so was because well....he's awesome.  It didn't take too long for that opinion to spread. Almost every week for a year, I would receive invites to parties and they seemed to always include a strong request to bring to bring my new friend. Why? Because he was awesome. So much so, that I think the trajectory of how much and how quickly he became beloved by the high school could have actually made him our Homecoming King (not that anybody really gives a **** now, but back then....sure), if he became more social a year earlier. I'm in still in touch with him and I always tell people about him although nobody seems to really comprehend why for a year he became one of my best friends. I tell stories about him but they don't do the personality justice.  But now I have this clip below. This is him in a nutshell and while it's hard to articulate the exact flavor of hilarity and enthusiasm this is, boy does it have traction with nearly everyone. Munenori Kawasaki is just really really happy and excited and well, that's just awesome.
