Cosquillas (Tickling)

Hang on to your hats, because your head will be spinning! Watch John explode into his newest and wildest musical video yet! Cosquillas (or the Art of Tickling) is a celebration of the innocence that comes from hearing a child’s laughter. Enjoy John’s amazing new original musical techno-wizardry on the keyboard and guitar, and watch over 18 beautiful young faces and see dozens of wild images of amazing dancers, unique locations and animated surprises.

Shot in both Mexico and Los Angeles, Cosquillas is a heart-warming reminder of how unique and special all kids are when they are being tickled. Cosquillas brings us all to our youth, and fills our souls with the happiness and love we all feel for the kids in our lives.
(Produced, Directed and Choreographed by John Mejia).

COSQUILLAS
(Translation)

Tell me what you wish for, what you need, and what you like,
Tell me sweetheart and you shall have it.
I just want to hold you, and to grab you, and to hug you,
I just want to cuddle you all the time,

Because you are electric, splendid, the maximum, fantastic, charming,
artistic, energetic, handsome, angelic, so funny, authentic,
poetic, magical, and classical, and rhythmical and More!

And every time you’re with me, I begin to live, you are the reason that I exist,
My heart smiles when I see you laugh,
So that’s why I try to find you sweetheart, because I know what you like,
Co-Co-Co, Co-Co-Co, Co-Co – Tickling!

Let’s go to the Zoo, and to the Circus, and then dancing, I’ll invite you everywhere,
I love to be with you, and I miss you when you’re not there,
Because you are all of my Happiness,

Without you I get frenetic, crazy, eccentric, a maniac, nostalgic,
dramatic, fanatical, erratic, uncomfortable, hysterical, neurotic, volcanic,
ilogical, and critical, and mystical, and More!

In the evenings, while you’re dreaming, and I watch you fall asleep,
I watch your face so closely, and then you start to laugh,
and so I pray that all your happy dreams, become a reality,
For the rest of your life, so that you will always be happy!

And every time you’re with me, I begin to live, you are the reason that I exist,
My heart smiles when I see you laugh,
So that’s why I try to find you sweetheart, because I know what you like,
Co-Co-Co, Co-Co-Co, Co-Co-Co – Tickling!
