The phrase “Pen Pineapple Apple Pen” has never been catchier.
You know that feeling when you hear someone’s inside joke and wish you were part of it? That’s the only way we can describe this next Japanese song people are falling in love with.
The song is called. “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen” or “PPAP” for short and it’s just as silly as it sounds. But people are saying it may be the next “Gangnam Style.” However, the Japanese hit by Piko Taro – comedian/DJ Kosaka Daimou’s alias – has reached 11 million views already since it was uploaded in August.
The video begins with Daimou dressed in gold and animal print complete with a weird mustache. He spouts off his first few lyrics with hand gestures, “I have a pen. I have an apple. [grunt]… Apple Pen.”
If that first line didn’t make sense, maybe the next one will, “I have a pen. I have pineapple. [grunt]… Pineapple pen.”
After that, he starts making as many word combinations as possible with, pen, pineapple, and apple until he runs out. At the end, he thrusts his fists into the air like Superman taking off but to the sound of something out of Super Mario video game.
So who even likes this song? Justin Bieber says he loves it. Yes, Bieber joins the 44 million views alongside the population of people from the Philipines. Bieber doesn’t seem to have a reason for liking it, but did post on Twitter saying, “My favorite video on the internet.” The Filipino population loves it because it sounds a lot like a favorite song called “Budots,” a popular Filipino remix that is also ridiculous.
