Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve definitely heard of the song that begins with “I have a pen, I have an apple…” – well, we’ll let you finish the rest.
After causing major human jams in his recent Taiwan visit, the man behind the viral hit “PPAP” is coming to Singapore this month to take part in the Anime Festival Asia (AFA). And just in case you are still wondering, PPAP stands for Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen.
The song that lasts only 45 seconds is now a Guinness World Record for the shortest song to break into the Billboard Hot 100. In fact, the song is so short that he now has a ‘LONG’ version. Pikotaro, the singer has Justin Bieber to thank, who caused the song to go viral and making it a global sensation after sharing the song to his social media fans.
Since then, “PPAP” has been viewed more than 85 million views on YouTube. And like they all say, the rest is history.
You can catch him at the Anime Festival that takes place from 25 to 27 November 2016. If you are only there for the Japanese comedian Daimaou Kosaka, Pikotaro, do purchase your tickets for the 27 November as that will be the date he lands in Singapore as announced by entertainment channel WakuWaku on its Facebook page. Pikotaro is known for starting his “PPAP” performances anytime, anywhere, so do get ready your lyric and dance move as it might just happen.
