Since Ed Sheeran released his smash hit single “Shape of You” last year, countless people around the world have uploaded videos of themselves performing this incredibly catchy song to YouTube. Most of these performances are of course, pretty forgettable and no match for the original. Last week, however, the world was blessed with a truly stand out (and nonsensical) interpretation of Sheeran’s single when a certain Japanese virtual YouTuber released her own version.

Released on March 20, the video below begins with the virtual Japanese YouTuber/idol Azuma Lim (a.k.a. Azulim) explaining to viewers that she has been practicing “the hottest song in the world” at her music school so she’d like to perform it.

After the short intro, that instantly recognizable synth riff starts up and a couple seconds later Azuma begins to do what she promised. There’s just one problem. The words she “produces” aren’t actually words. They’re gibberish.

Owai owai owai

Although what Azuma can be heard saying does bear a passing resemblance to the original English lyrics, they are actually nothing more than a meaningless string of Japanese syllables that every once in a while happen to form real Japanese words like sensei and samui (cold). Don’t look to the Japanese subtitles for help either because even though kanji is used for some of the lyrics, ultimately, none of what she says really means anything.

Check out Azuma Lim’s unintelligible, infectious, and kawaii take on “Shape of You” in the video below.

Still want more Azuma Lim? Then you may want to check out the video below in which she performs Japanese pop idol group Keyakizaka46’s hit song “Silent Majority.” This time around not only are her words not gibberish but she can even be seen dancing. As for her singing abilities, let’s just say she should keep going to that singing school she mentioned in the “Shape of You” video.
