She is part bubblegum pop star, part performance artist … and part robot?
She is a YouTube phenomenon with more than 200 million views.
She is Poppy. And her fans are called “Poppy Seeds.”
But exactly who (or what) is Poppy?
NPR’s Scott Simon endeavored to find out.
“I’m from the Internet,” Poppy tells Simon on NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday.
Poppy posted her first YouTube video in 2015 after teaming up with self-proclaimed director Titanic Sinclair. The video is titled “Poppy Eats Cotton Candy,” and she does just that. The bleach-blond woman sits in front of a white backdrop eating baby-pink cotton candy for one minute and 22 seconds.
Her most popular video, “I’m Poppy,” has garnered 12 million views. It’s 10 minutes of Poppy saying her name over and over again.
