“PPAP” all started when PIKOTARO posted the song on YouTube by himself. I wrote about it a few weeks ago when it started trending (link here PPAP: The next ‘Gangnam Style?’) The word spread from teenage girls and internationally, creating a buzz. TIME, BBC, CNN and other global media in Europe, US, and Asia took notice of the sensation and “PPAP” resulted in being covered by numerous media around the world.
Kinky perm, sunglass and clad in animal print. With the infectious bizarre phrase “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen” (PPAP), PIKOTARO age 53, singer/songwriter from Chiba, Japan releases 4 songs including “PPAP” in 134 countries, only through digital distribution on Oct 7th. PIKOTARO finally made a world debut. These songs can be downloaded thru Spinnr.ph in the Philippines!
