When Piko Taro hit YouTube by storm thanks to his famous “Pen Pineapple Apple Pen” dance video, Justin Bieber became one of his biggest fans.
Justin Bieber and PPAP’s Piko Taro recently teamed up to endorse of Japanese telecommunications and internet company Softbank. Although the pairing could possibly be the weirdest “bromance” to kick off this 2017, it might actually work.

According to CNET, Softbank released a behind the scenes video of what went with Bieber and Taro’s meeting. In the 1-minute video, Justin was seen wearing a blue colored Japanese school uniform. He then entered a classroom where Taro seems to be playing the character of a teacher.
Both looked delighted to meet each other, even singing bits from the famous Pen Pineapple song. The Canadian popstar looked amused of his newest partner as the two capped the video by saying, “Pen Pineapple Apple Pen.”
RocketNews24 reported that Taro has appeared in a few of Softbank’s commercials. But this time, he is sharing the stage with Bieber to promote the company’s “Super Student” campaign which is Softbank’s newest phone promo plans for students between ages 18 and 25.
