UNICEF Japan and its partners have released a hilarious video to promote handwashing to mark 2009 Global Handwashing Day.

Renowned Japanese dancer Kaiji Moriyama has choreographed a dance for a public service announcement designed to teach children the principles of good handwashing.

The dance shows children how in just 20 seconds they can properly wash their palms, nails, fingers and wrists. The dance has almost no verbal instruction, but, by simply following the steps, children learn proper handwashing while also having fun.

Go “washy washy wa”  and “soupy soupy soo” together with Kaiji and do the Global Handwashing dance!

This could become the new Macarena!
