PPAP Star, Collaborating With BigBang, Will Conquer Spain with Sushi

TOKYO (September 24, 2018) - PIKOTARO, famous for PPAP, never slows his momentum! Guess what! Now, he appears in a surprise flash mob in V.I's (from BIGBANG) new single “WHERE R U FROM,” from his new album “THE GREAT SEUNGRI.” When “PPAP” became a hit after its release the year before last, V.I quickly started doing a PPAP impersonation during the BIGBANG stadium tour. Ever since PIKOTARO heard that story, he has wanted to return the favor to V.I. Therefore he accepted this offer to make a surprise appearance. For the video shoot, he memorized V.I's dance routine step for step.
