What is Jiggly Cake and Why is This Video of One Oddly Satisfying?

I'm used to unicorn cake decorating tutorials catching my attention on YouTube, but when I saw the name "Jiggly Cake," I was perplexed and had to check this out. 

Based on a quick Google search, it looks like Jiggly Cake is essentially a Japanese cheesecake. I've never really thought of cheesecake jiggling, but now that it has my full attention, that is definitely one of the dessert's most-overlooked characteristics. 

The *experts* at Wikipedia provide clarification: the jiggly cake is a cotton cheesecake or sponge cake originating in Hakata, Japan, in 1948 and popularized in the United States by Uncle Tetsu's Cheesecake bakery. Supposedly less sweet and containing fewer calories than the "standard" cheesecake, it's made with cream cheese, butter, sugar, whipped cream, and eggs. 

Fewer calories? Yea right. 

Now watch this cake jiggle, because it's oddly satisfying. *giggle* The cake below is at Original Cake in Singapore. Make your own with this recipe from Tasty.
