Chinese musicians Chopstick Brothers have won the first-ever International Song Award at the American Music Awards.
The duo received the award in recognition of their viral hit single "Little Apple" (Xiao Pingguo) which became the ubiquitous background muzak for literally everywhere in the country this year, and has been streamed online almost a billion times.
Chopstick Brothers performed the musical sensation live on stage before receiving their award, although there's heated debate online about whether or not they were just lip-syncing.
Known in some quarters as the "Brainwashing Song," it's been suggested that the entire stateside music industry must've brainwashed to award such ear-bleedingly bad noise. Considering One Direction was the night's biggest winner, however, it's entirely likely that the AMAs exist purely to pour accolades upon pop culture piffle so abysmal it makes you despair for the human race.
