The internet is obsessed with the next ‘Gangnam Style’, and it’s about fruit. PPAP, which is short for Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen. Before you ask, it has nothing to do with Apple, the company. It’s about fruit and pens.
The guy doing the singing, if you can call it that, is Japanese singer and comedian Piko Taro. The original song is just about one minute long. Posted on YouTube in August, it became a monster hit after reaching 9Gag’s Facebook page, where it amassed 50 million views and 1 million shares. The video is viral on YouTube as well, where it got more than 5 million views.
I’m telling you, everyone you know is going to sing this damned song about pens and pineapples, included you.
You will shortly click play on the video, below, and listen to «Pen-Pineapple Apple-Pen» (or «PPAP»). You will voluntarily allow the ear-worm to wheedle its way into your brain, where it will, for the foreseeable future, make a cozy bivouac.
