Do you like Hatsune Miku? And the song CaramellDansen? Well, now you can enjoy Hatsune Miku and CaramellDansen with a twist! We have the Para Para version! This is a very funny video about one of my favorite trends online: Hatsune Miku and CaramellDansen. If you don’t know it yet, the Swedish group Caramell released in November 2001 this song, and it got viral. It got very popular online thanks to a meme in 2006 in the internet community 4chan. Since then, thousands of memes and Youtube videos have used CaramellDansen to create anime and comic versions of all kinds.
CaramellDansen became famous in Japan with the name of “uma uma dance” (ウマウマダンス) mainly because in the lyrics you can hear “u ua uaaa.” Plus Japanese started to add kaomoji too (like this (ﾟ∀ﾟ) and many others) at the end of the title (basically it makes it cute). Japanese have also change the meaning of the song using the phonetics, which can end up with very funny combinations. Thus, the song became even more viral.
So, it is not surprising to find Hatsune Miku dancing CaramellDansen! Creativity and combination of pop culture that comes around the world is just a normality online.
