Pikotaros new song set to destroy Orange Juice for good

Japanese comedian Daimaou Kosaka, also known as Pikotaro, released his follow-up song to last years viral monstrosity PPAP (Pen Pineapple Apple Pen).

The song titled ‘I Like OJ‘ is raking up millions of views on youtube, only hours after it was upload.  One would think that with orange juice out of favour with millennials the last thing it needs is an ear numbing anthem that will drive us all nuts in the next few days.

OJ Under Pressure

Orange Juice sales have been in decline for the last 15 years in the US. Reasons range from too sugary to the unexpected price increase due to the “citrus greening” disease that hit Florida in 2005, but mainly Orange Juice just became boring.

However big corporates have no intention to let OJ slide down the drain without a fight.

The Responds

This month PepsiCo bought advertising on Ashton Kutcher’s A Plus website to help promote good old OJ. Thanks to Kutcher’s star power, the video was subsequently shared by his celebrity buddies and done the hard miles online.

I Like OJ

While watching Pikotaro’s ‘I Like OJ‘ – even with mute on – one can only wonder if this is some higher OJ Illuminati plotting to make Orange Juice great again, or destroy it forever.
