No more pen-pineapple-apple-pen, time for OJ!
PPAP singer Pikotaro begins 2017 with a brand new song, ‘I Like OJ’.
Somehow Pikotaro took 2016 by storm with ‘PPAP’ AKA ‘Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen’. The 51-second video, viewed over 180 million times, even set a new record for becoming the shortest single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching number 1 in Japan.
Now, the loveable albeit quirky Japanese singer has released a new track – ‘I Like OJ’.
The new song and accompanying video features bizarre lyrics and of course Pikotaro in full form, who returns dressed in his iconic leopard-print outfit, equipped with new dance moves. The 1 minute 22 second video may be slightly longer than PPAP, is equally as ridiculous.
‘I Like OJ’ has already been viewed millions of times on YouTube.
The premise of the song is simple – Pikotaro shares his love for orange juice by rejecting all other beverages, including grape juice, tomato juice and mango juice.
In the video’s description, Pikotaro says, he is “Just singing about what I like… that’s it,” adding that people are happy when they get what they like.
