Kyary Pamyu Pamyu: 100%KPP in the USA

There’s an ad currently airing in the US in which children imagine an island made of candy. On this island, waves from a soda pop ocean crash onto a beach of granulated sugar. A volcano spews hot fudge lava. The skulls of long-ago shipwrecked pirates consist of rock candy, and the bats and spiders are made of licorice. And if such an island existed, who would be performing cute sugary pop songs in its gingerbread theater? Kyary Pamyu Pamyu of course, wearing brightly colored cotton candy dresses with ribbon candy bows.
