PIKOTARO and the NFT phenomenon Zombie Zoo Keeper present their new music video project

The Japanese comedian PIKOTARO is known for his hit music “Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen”, which was released on YouTube in 2016 and has now had over 416 million views. His new music video project “Zombie Zoo to PIKOTARO DESU” was released on May 3, which was created in collaboration with the 9-year-old NFT artist Zombie Zoo Keeper.

The project connects two generations of the Internet and heralds a new era of entertainment. Fans could unlock a preview of the music video by purchasing a limited Zombie Zoo Keeper NFT on the OP3N platform. The video was created by YouTube star Wengie and produced by KOSAKA DAIMAOU. PICOTARO provided the music for the song, while Zombie Zoo’s mother Emi Kusano (aka Emi Satellite) provided the lyrics to the song. The song features vocals from all three artists.

Golden ticket for further projects

NFTs are digital works of art that are sold in a limited number. They are offered on platforms like OpenSea or OP3N and can quickly increase in value over time. The common currency used to buy NFTs is the cryptocurrency ETH (Ethereum). From April 25 to April 27, it was possible to purchase one of a total of 1000 music video frames from Zoombie Zoo Keeper and the PIKOTARO collaboration. The coveted NFTs were priced at 0.08 ETH (about 216 euros).

Anyone who was able to purchase one of the PikoZoo NFTs was also added as a member of the Zombie Zoo family and whitelisted for future collaborations. There is a gold ticket in light of the upcoming collaboration with Shinsei Galverse, which is an NFT project led by Zombie Zoo’s mother, Emi Kusano. The highest traded price on Zombie Zoos Pixel Art NFT is 4 ETH (approx. 10800 euros). Another benefit for PikoZoo NFT owners was access to an exclusive audio livestream chat with PIKOTARO, Zombie Zoo Keeper and Emi Kusano on OP3N.

The NFT art collection from the two artists’ music video project is for sale under the name “PikoZoo” on the platform OP3N. The still very young NFT creator Zombie Zoo Keeper started creating his first NFTs on the subject of “Zombies x Animals” at the age of 8. He became famous after Steve Aoki bought his NFTs. The number of his digital works of art is (as of 15 March 2022) 254 pieces with a total turnover of 111 ETH (approximately 297,000 euros).

The new music video brings together two popular internet icons, from Web2 and Web3.
