If 2016 was the year of apples and pineapples, 2017 looks set to be the year of orange juice.
If one of your goals was to turn over a new leaf and resist watching Piko Taro videos in 2017, prepare to break that New Year’s resolution right now because the performer has just released a brand new single that’s so ridiculous and catchy it looks set follow in the footsteps of viral hit “Pen-Pineapple-Apple Pen.”
The new track is called “I Like OJ”, and according to the singer’s official YouTube channel, the single is now available worldwide. The video for the song, which was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, features all the crazy lyrics and energetic dance moves we’ve come to expect from the leopard-print loving star, with a new citrus theme that’s so popular it’s already racked up close to a million views online.
Take a look at the hilarious clip below!
Piko Taro is his usually energetic self for the video, raving about his love of orange juice while refusing all other beverages with an emphatic “No, no, no, no, no!” When it comes to his juice of choice, though, the answer is a joyous “Yes!”
According to the description included with the video, Piko Taro says he’s “Just singing about what I like… that’s it.” He comments that people become happy when they get what they like, and when you’re happy you start dancing, which is what dance music is all about.
▼ If this reaction is anything to go by, Piko Taro REALLY likes getting orange juice!
The catchy tune and clever lyrics, which allow for an endless number of substitutions, have us bracing ourselves for a new onslaught of tribute videos and comments from YouTubers and celebrities gleefully proclaiming what they like, along with some crazy Piko-Taro-esque dance moves.
We can’t help but wonder if this means there’ll be some new collaborations in the pipeline, like the ones we saw with “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen”, only this time characters like Elmo and Cookie Monster will no doubt be dancing up a storm over tickles and cookies!
