The Pineapple Pen video, posted on YouTube by Piko Taro, has already garnered over 15 million views in less than a week.

“I have a pen. I have an apple. Apple-pen!

I have a pen. I have pineapple. Pineapple-pen!

Apple pen. Pineapple pen. Pen pineapple apple pen.”

If this what you’re humming to yourself, chances are you hate yourself for loving it. With a catchy tune, a comical dance, ridiculous outfits and nonsensical lyrics, the ‘Pineapple Pen’ song by a Japanese artist is internet’s new obsession.

The video, created by Japanese comedian Piko Taro and DJ Kosaka, has already garnered over 15 million views on YouTube in less than a week. The Apple logo (we mean, Steve Job’s electronics giant Apple) at the end of the song may explain the game, ‘Pineapple Pen’, is available on the iPhone and iPad.

Pop sensation Justin Bieber tweeted about the song earlier this week, calling it his “favourite video” on the internet.

Who knows, it might just be the next Gangnam Style, which was the most watched YouTube video after it was posted by artist Psy in 2013.
