In the realm of headlines I ever thought I would write, that certainly was never one of them. Thanks to a tipoff on tumblr, we've been informed of this video by a Chinese pop-group (is that C-Pop? Is that a thing?) called the "Chopsticks Brothers". The song is called "Little Apple", and there is something rather familiar about this bizarre video.
As user "theonlycottoncandy" pointed out the set of "Little Apple" looks quite similar to a familiar sight on My Little Pony. It looks strikingly similar to Sweet Apple Acres.
It looks similar...because it IS Sweet Apple Acres.
In context, you can see the iconic hillside from this other vector from hawk.
And people complain about me watching dubbed anime. Look at that mess. You have no fucking idea what's going on don't even kid yourself.
There is some speculation that this is a convoluted reference to masculinity, as larger Adams Apples are common for adult men, and smaller for women. The song's name "little apple" and an evident sex change seems to imply there's a message in there somewhere. Is the set of "My Little Pony" being used as an extension of this metaphor for gender roles? Again we have no idea. The only Chinese we speak comes in the form of fortune cookie wrappers.
Watch the video, it's catchy as fuck.
Will China be the next country to get the pony craze? Could the world handle another billion bronies? Probably not. But that girl does have a strong resemblance to an Apple Bloom cosplayer we saw once.
