This Japanese Man Plays Despacito On TWO Calculators & Went Viral

If you’ve never heard of Despacito before, chances are, you’re a rock, a star or a star living under a rock.

And your name is Patrick.

The song was so hot it was played everywhere. And when I say everywhere, I mean clubs, shopping malls and even toilets.

It got to a point where the song could be looped on a radio broadcast a whopping 5 times an hour.

I don’t know about you, but even the best song has a limited number of playthroughs; any more than that is just going to make you sick.

Well, guess what? There’s another version of the viral hit (Yayyy); it’s yet another remix, sort of (Yayyy); it’s played not on your generic music instruments but two freaking calculators (Yayyy… WHAT?)


Japan strikes again

On August 27, a Japanese man posted a video of him playing ‘Despacito’ on two calculators, and it became viral, garnering 7k retweets and 27k likes.

Apart from Japanese commenters complimenting him on his work and the occasional Ang Moh speaking netizen joining in, he even gained a potential client!

Guess talent gets you to high places, eh?

Can’t say it’s undeserved though.


I think I speak for all of us when I say that we are ‘sick and tired’ of that goddamn song.

Sure it was really catchy and hip at the start, but hearing this Spanish dude ramble off lyrics that sound alien to the majority of us will get to you at some point in time.

Anyway, big ups to the creator of the video! It mustn’t have been easy for him to figure out the rhythmic patterns and sounds of the calculator to form into the song we know, loved and hate.

Check the video out for yourself:

But one guy got it right.

I really want to know where to get calculators like his.

I’ll play the Singapore National Day song for this year on the calculators and make myself famous. Heh.

Although there’s one thing I’ve noticed. Not sure if you’ve noticed but the display on the calculators doesn’t change even though he is tapping on the number. It simply shows the date of his ‘performance’ (I guessed. #SorryNotSorry)

I sure hope this isn’t fake or I’ll be heartbroken AF.
