Japanese comedian and the new DJ song Kosaka Daimou it may soon be circulating around the world through people around the world (笑 - lol). Some people are even predicting that the song could surpass YouTube's mega-hit “Gangnam Style” by Psy South Korean artist. Although I find it difficult ...

We do not know the current condition of this viral when reading this post ... But it is amazing how a video of just 1 minute, with a letter that makes absolutely no sense went viral so quickly.

Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen video

You can watch the video in the video above. But be warned, from the moment you hear the song, it will not leave your head and it may be unconsciously touching your head for days and days.


The song is performed by “Dj Piko-Taro”, a character that was created by Kosaka Daimou (40 years old), during his live shows. "Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen" has all the elements of a viral hit: catchy melody, meaningless lyrics, and a man with a totally clueless outfit, not to mention the scarf.


The video has been watched more than 53 million times on the comedian's official channel, not to mention that it has also been advertised on several other channels. For example, only one channel called 9GAG which was just one of several channels that announced the hit, managed to accumulate over 25 million views.

We've had several parodies and images posted online. To the Siri Assistant Apple joined in the joke, just tell her that she will sing a song related to Apple products.

Do you think this short song can really beat the PSY hit? Not in visualizations, but in our heads ... Or more importantly: Will we ever be able to get this hit out of our heads? Anyway ... Only time will tell.
