Music Review: Pen Pineapple Apple Pen (Piko-Taro)

Many must be askin’, is this the new ‘Gangnam Style’? Guess almost everybody is just curious on what’s all about this phenomenon. Hey, since it was first posted on the 25th of August, two of its YouTube videos has over 10 millions views. One is nearing 27M while the other is almost 14 million. Wow!

Well, we’ve just been observing. And so let’s see..

Whoa! The song is actually too simple, almost non-sense in fact — just about combining a couple of words. And then repeating. But the tune is like a hypnotizing video game while the dance steps look quite funny. Yeah, as especially done by Piko-Taro (a fictional singer-songwriter created by Japanese comedian Kosaka Daimaou), the performer, you know. Haha! 100116-pineapple-pen

Still, this PPAP got many doing their own version and have also gained viewership — so ‘Pen Pineapple Apple Pen’ must be something!

Anyway, the music is a bit short, so it would be tough to tell if it could really make a run at ‘Gangnam Style’ — as listeners and viewers could somehow get bored or tired of it in the long run. But if Piko-Taro gets to do some kind of a world tour with producers also into other promotional tactics then probably..

It now all depends on its YouTube viewership pace.
