We Have Reached Peak WTF: A Punjabi Ode To Pokémon GO

Sing it to win it.


Folks, we have reached peak WTF.
Like scenes from a dystopian movie, in the past month we have witnessed rather disturbing sights of zombie-like Pokémon hunters ramming into other people, doors, walls, trees, parked cars all over the globe. Some have even stumbled upon dead bodies.

With Pokémon Go having taken over people's lives so completely, it is only logical that 'augmented reality' game breaks into the realm of the finer arts.
What does that mean?
Well, basically, this is just another way of saying that the Punjabi singer Simar Gill has now come up with a song dedicated to...yes...Pokemon.
Here is the lilting Punjabi ode to Pokémonia. Do not miss the 'background vocals' saying "Pika...Pikachu".




What can we say to this inimitable rendering of the global zeitgeist. Nothing really, so it is best to just join in and sing along. Pika...Pika...Pikachu.
