This clever ode to chinchillas is my new favorite thing

I can't stop listening to this awesome ode to chinchillas. Check out the lyrics:

I know why folks glimpse and say "Oh, you a giant mouse"!

But I'm Chinchillidae family, baby, I'm a different species, baby. 

I'm chinchilla baby, I'm so cute, Fluffy coat, feel it, baby.

Sprout eighty hairs from just one follicle, baby.

I'm a sub as a boy, Wife's bigger, baby.

And the thing about this rodent– I know my bros is endangered, Out there in the wild

Frolickin' up top, In the Andes, baby, , baby!

I grow my coat in so dense it smothers ticks and louse.

Plus I can leap up to six feet, baby. Live for up twenty, baby.

This song is so catchy, and chock full of fun facts about chinchillas, what's not to love? It also somehow manages to rhyme "In the Andes" with "Livin' crepuscularly"—and, shockingly, it actually works! Finally, there's just something so funny about a tiny man singing in front of a giant chinchilla who is just sitting back there breathing and munching on snacks.

This brilliant performance was created by Perth, Australia-based comedian and musician Matt Storer. Here's his bio from Grand Stand Agency:
