Comedian Kosaka Daimaou's standup persona Pikotaro is a Japanese singer-songwriter from Chiba prefecture, and he has some pretty lofty goals of performing at ultra-popular end-of-the-year Japanese song festival Kōhaku Uta Gassen, as well as Summer Sonic. In the meantime, he's showing us proof that he has the chops to do it by launching a viral attack on the internet with a comedic jingle that is bound to take up permanent residence in your head. It's called the Pen Pineapple Apple Pen and it is simply amazing.
The song is about having a pen, an apple, and a pineapple. That's all it is. But when you look like a mashup of famous Japanese actor Kunie Tanaka and MC Hammer, you really don't need to rely too much on lyrical depth.
And that simplicity is translating to a lot of people doing their own versions, with these being the biggest ones.
As brief as the song is, it's already spread around the globe with its absurdly addictive charm.
