About

Simillar to Kirby’s Gourmet Race, Sand Canyon and Masked DeDeDe, this audio track has been a popular music resource for online parodies through YouTube and the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND).

According to Nico Nico Pedia[2], an internet encyclopedia for NND, this song began to be used in MADs on NND in the first half in 2008. And the first video that led to a substantial increase in popularity of the series was “Kirby of the Star : Super Misao Deluxe” (星のカービィ スーヴァーみさおデラックス) posted to NND on May 16th, 2008.[3] This video features the Japanese anime Lucky Star[4], and its title based on the Japanese original title of Kirby Super Star.
