    I sincerely hope that this is just a case of misuse of digital tools and not the beginning of a long journey of embarrassment by a legendary performer.

    They would have to be DAMN good, if you watch for a few more seconds, you see him dancing with the others and saying Oha as well.

    It had to be James Brown. I don't recognize the guy in the pink dress. Fun video, but the quality was awful.

    OK, here is the story, The japanese guy is "Shingo Mama".

    Basically he has his own TV show for Children in Japan and is sometimes seen going to peoples houses, gives the mom some time off while he makes the kids breakfast and does a show or some such. The song "Oha" became a big hit over there due to helping children say Hello easier. Basically Oha is a shortened version of a much longer word that children in Japan had a hard time saying. Also with the actions of the forefinger and thumb you say "Oha" to someone and you are saying hello in a friendly way. Shingo won an award for best word of the year or something in the way it helped children with greetings that were much less complicated.
