Japanese kids sing 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' tune
The Internet does not always supply context. But when it offers up a video of adorable Japanese kids singing "The Dayman Song" from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" while standing in front of a whiteboard image of "Family Guy's" Peter Griffin, how much explanation does anyone really need?
The video was first published on YouTube in August, but started taking off virally after being posted as a Reddit link on Monday. Thus far, the video has over 370,000 hits on YouTube. In it, the children stand in a straight line and not only sing the lyrics (a conversation between "The Princess" and "The Dayman") but offer up a little choreography and hand gestures, too. (And if you like that, be sure to check out children rocking out to the Ramones' "Judy Is a Punk," from 2011.)
"Dayman" appeared on "Philadelphia" as part of a musical written by one of the show's characters; on the show, the musical did not go over well. Who knew it could have such a lively second life on the other side of the world from Philly?
