WATCH: ‘PPAP’ singer Piko-Taro makes cameo in Psy’s new hit
Psy, the Korean pop star responsible for the 2012 earworm “Gangnam Style,” is busting the internet with his new singles, “I Luv It” and “New Face.”
Guess what, a familiar yellow leotard-wearing man popped up for a quick cameo role in the “I Luv It” music video: Piko-Taro, played by Japanese comedian Kosaka Daimaou. Just like Psy, Piko Taro became a celebrity with his ditty “Pen Pineapple Apple Pen,” which now has 120 million views on YouTube.
Also featured in the clip was Lee Byung-hun, who appeared in films such as “Gi Joe: Retaliation” and “Terminator: Genisys.”
Both tracks are part of Psy’s new album “4×2=8” and are now scaling YouTube with over 8 million views each.
They could possibly follow the footsteps of predecessor “Gangnam Style,” which was ranked as the most-streamed clip on the site with 2.8 billion hits. Gianna Francesca Catolico /ra
