It’s physically impossible to watch this video only once

Where to start with this one? We have a brand new crazy Japanese video (known in Japan as simply ‘a video’) and this one is a real treat. Singer Piko-Taro sings a song which centres around putting a pen into an apple, putting a pen into a pineapple, putting a pen and apple into a pineapple and … you get the idea.

Watch it now for what will be the first time, but not the last:


The video has proven a huge viral hit and the comedian has immediately jumped on the success by releasing a dance remix. Yes. The remix is pretty catchy, as you might have guessed:


Still no word on whether this is meant to be some incredibly meta parody of the new Apple Pen that you can get with that new giant iPad, but we’ll keep you posted.
