【看CP學英文】靠著神曲 PPAP 一炮而紅的 Piko 太郎，睽違四年，將聯合皮卡丘推出新歌，難道是沒梗了嗎？
The singer of “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen”/”PPAP” could also be working out of artistic juices as he’s now planning to crew up with an anime character to advertise a brand new track, 4 years after his hit single.
Daimaou Kosaka, higher identified by his stage title, Pikotaro, first rose to fame in 2016 along with his catchy track, PPAP. With its easy-to-remember and repetitive lyrics, the track garnered worldwide protection and has round 138 million views on YouTube.
今年四月，Piko 太郎推出「防疫版」PPAP，呼籲大眾勤洗手的重要。近日，他更是宣布會與日本超人氣卡通皮卡丘推出新曲PIKA to PIKO。
Following his current rendition of the track to advertise the significance of hand-washing in April, Pikotaro has now introduced that he’s planning to crew up with Japan’s favourite anime character, Pikachu to create a brand new track, titled “PIKA to PIKO”.
Based on native Japanese media, Pikotaro cited their shared appreciation for the colour yellow and his feeling of kinship with the Pokemon mascot as the primary cause behind the collaboration.
Piko 太郎接受日媒訪問時說道，「沒有人懂皮卡丘說的話，但我覺得我能用Piko 太郎的方法理解，我們很契合，所以想透過這首歌幫助大眾了解皮卡丘的內心。」
The singer was quoted by native media as saying, “For this track, I interpreted Pikachu’s phrases. Nobody understands Pikachu’s language, however I used to be in a position to perceive them in a Pikotaro-like means, and I really feel [like] our minds [are linked].”
PIKA to PIKO這首歌將在8月31日寶可夢公司舉辦的「寶可夢 Digital Fest」中正式發表。
“PIKA to PIKO” is scheduled to make its debut on the Pokemon Digital Fest, hosted by the Pokemon Firm,on Aug. 31.
