PIKOTARO and Sesame Street come together for a delicious combination



One of the latest and weirdest viral videos that really took off is one from Japan is PIKOTARO, or better known for his video "Pen Pineapple Apple Pen" or "PPAP" for short. If you've been living under a massive pen-pineapple-apple-pen rock, the video is about a ridiculously (and fabulously) dressed man talking about putting fruits and stationery together for some kind of use. There have been countless parodies and mashups from all kinds of people but the best one has to go to the man who made the whole thing himself.

PIKOTARO has teamed up with Sesame Street Japan, a the Japanese version of Sesame Street, to teach kids about the importance of how to do the PPAP dance right. We get to see one of the oddest and most unexpected team-ups ever, where Elmo and Cookie Monster get a special lesson on the dance from PIKOTARO himself about the nuances and style of the PPAP dance. Now everyone can do the dance better, if only PIKOTARO can teach everyone how to make their PPAP parody videos actually funny.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
