Kazuhito Kosaka (Japanese: 古坂和仁 Hepburn: Kosaka Kazuhito, born 17 July 1973), better known by his stage names Daimaou Kosaka (古坂大魔王 Kosaka Daimaō) and Pikotaro (ピコ太郎 Pikotarō, born 17 July 1963), is a Japanese comedian. He is best known for his single “PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen)”.

Kosaka said in an interview that he came up with [PPAP] sitting in his house. He was listening to the tune when he picked up a pen to start writing. He thought about his background of being from Japan’s biggest apple-producing region (Aomori Prefecture) as he also realized that he had an open can of pineapples on the table. It was released as a music video on YouTube on 25 August 2016, and has since become a viral video.

Animal prints have long been a popular style for many reasons. For one, they are generally expensive and considered rather exotic; hence they are a symbol of wealth and status.
