Have You Met PIKO-TARO Yet? No? Then Better Get on Board.

I have no f**king clue what’s going on here, but PIKO-TARO’s rap(?) called “Pen-Apple-Pineapple-Pen” (“PAPP” to those in the know) is winning the Internet this week for no reason anyone can discern.

As I write this, this 68-second piece of weirdness has racked up 6.2 million views. Before you click play, be forewarned that you will not be able to excise this tune from your brain for at least 48 hours. (Blame the Telegraph for the link.)
