What kind of music is “ PPAP “?

Refer to this site: https://prcm.jp/album/85ec97cfed63f/pic/62778185

“ PPAP” spread all over the world explosively since Justin Bieber, famous pop musician, introduced this video as his favorite music video. “ PPAP “completed the consecutive first place in 2 weeks with the formal Youtube channel and recorded approximately 60 million times of play counts. “ PPAP “ achieved the 77th place in the U.S. billboard on Oct.19, and it was a remarkable accomplishment in 26 years for Japanese to enter the Top100. But it doesn’t seem to become the topic in USA at all….

I wonder why he is so popular with people around the world. One of the reasons is that this song is so simple because only a few words come out and has a strong impact.

“ PPAP “ is gaining popularity with a focus on Japanese high school girls and seems to be quite well even overseas. I cannot forget this “ piko piko “ sound listening just once. Maybe this strange man is genius.
