A new song has taken over the internet. But no one seems to know what it is about.
The song, Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen, is about, well, pens, apples and pineapples. The song, PPAP for short, comes from the kitty of a caricature singer-songwriter who goes by the name of Piko-Taro.
According to Spoon & Tamago, Piko-Taro is a fictional character created by comedian and DJ Kosaka Daimaou (Kazuhiko Kosaka).

PPAP, posted on 25 August, has already garnered over four million YouTube views at last count. It has already been dubbed the viral sensation of the year, and the Gangnam Style of 2016.
