Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen – Japanese viral

[ADS] Advertisement

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

We don't know the current condition of this viral when reading this post… But it's amazing how a video of just 1 minute, with lyrics that make absolutely no sense, went viral so quickly.

Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen video

You can watch the video of the song in the video above. But be warned, once you hear the song, it won't get out of your head and it can be playing in your head unconsciously in your head for days and days.

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


The video has been watched over 53 million times on the comedian's official channel, not to mention that it has also been announced 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 more than 25 million views.

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

Do you think this short song can really top PSY's hit? Not in views, 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.
