Yes, those are pictures of ice sculptures of Piko Taro doing his viral hit, “PPAP.”
This is Japan, this is their country now.
“I met a traveler from a Far East land,
Who said: Two vast and trunkless hands of ice,
Reach from the snow. Near them, on the display,
Fully realized, a creepy visage remains, whose smile,
And pencil stache, and eyebrows of flamboyant nature,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read,
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The music that mocked them and the words that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
‘My name is Piko Taro, comedian of comedians:
Look on my pineapple apple pen and despair!’
Little beside remains. Round the decay,
Of that colossal mistake, society ruins laid bare,
The abandoned structures stretch far away.”
It was a quality run, Japan.
