"PPAP" is Back!

"I have a pen, I have an apple♪" - the catchy song and weird dance has accumulated a total of 500 million views for 3 related videos, and now PIKOTARO returns on YouTube with a new video about hand-washing "PPAP-2020-"! The new video was produced in a hurry as the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

Watch the video to find out the real message behind "PPAP" that PIKOTARO wants to share with the world! (Editorial Dept.: Hachi)
