Official Pokémon TikTok account accidentally posts video filled with curse words

It seems that Pikachu has one last surpise for his fans just before he bids goodbye in the anime.

The Pokémon franchise's official account on TikTok had accidentally published to its 3.9 million followers a video showing a person dressed up in a Pikachu costume dancing around to someone wearing a Lucario suit. The clip, which was less than 20 seconds long, could have been easily forgotten if not for the choice of the song that's filled with swear words.

The video featured a sound from TikToker Andy Arthur Smith, where he had made a swear-filled parody of the popular nursery rhyme If You’re Happy and You Know it Clap Your Hands.

Prior to this, the account has only published child-friendly and completely wholesome videos.

The post has since been deleted after garnering more than 5,000 likes, but mistakes can never really disappear in the internet as the clip was quickly recorded by netizens and subsequently replublished in other social media platforms.

One user on Twitter speculated that the person who had posted the video was not too familar with the English language and did not catch the curse words because of the speed of the lyrics. However, the video seems to have been made specifically for the R-rated audio as Pikachu's movements matched the lyrics of the song.
