Warm squishy viral video of the week: Feel Inside and Stuff Like That

If there's one thing funnier than the often absurd suggestions that spring from the mouths of babes, it's a few comedians taking them seriously.

So often campaigns aimed at creating awareness and support for children's charities fail to speak to these children themselves. Children are often not given a voice, and their own opinions on these causes aren't heard.

New Zealand-based charity Cure Kids, which aims to find cures for diseases that threaten the lives of children around the globe, tried a different approach. They asked comedy duo Flight of the Conchords to come up with a catchy song for their latest fund-raising campaign, and Flight of the Conchords, in turn, asked children to come up with the lyrics.

Not one suggestion was ignored or rejected. The result is a video guaranteed to provoke giggles and warm squishy feelings in equal measure.

And with close on a million YouTube views only three days after the video was posted, it's an approach that certainly should be considered locally.
