'Vegetable' is successor to hit song 'Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen'
Two years ago, Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen (PPAP) was the video watched most on YouTube in the Netherlands. Justin Bieber tweeted about the song, calling it his favourite video on the internet. The song now has a successor: Vegetable. “After apples and pineapples, vegetable names were the only direction I could go in,” Japanese comedian Pikotaro told website Sora News 24.
The video for Vegetable, which features Japanese girl group Momoiro Clover Z dancing with Pikotaro, strongly resembles PPAP. The number of views on YouTube isn’t skyrocketing yet, the single is released mid-March.
