The Pineapple Pen video, posted on YouTube by Piko Taro, has already garnered over 15 million views in less than a week.
â€œI 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.â€
If this what youâ€™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 â€˜Pineapple Penâ€™ song by a Japanese artist is internetâ€™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 Jobâ€™s electronics giant Apple) at the end of the song may explain the game, â€˜Pineapple Penâ€™, is available on the iPhone and iPad.
Pop sensation Justin Bieber tweeted about the song earlier this week, calling it his â€œfavourite videoâ€ 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.
