Pantene has sent a special package of goodies to their unofficial hair spokesperson, “Pantene Oppa” Steve Aoki.
In late October, an exchange of hilarious tweets between Steve Aoki, radio station 103.7 KISS FM, Pantene, and BTS‘s ARMY led to a flood of fantastic Pantene memes.
ARMYs, who have adopted Steve Aoki as an additional BTS member, readily joined his #PanteneOppaSquad.
They even tweeted out at Pantene with collaboration ideas that would surely sell out, if they were to become a reality.

On November 9, less than two weeks after the craziness began, Steve Aoki once again referred to himself as “Pantene Oppa” while thanking ARMY for supporting “Waste It On Me”. In this 103.7 KISS FM video, he jokingly says that he would send ARMY the very first case of Pantene products he received, if Pantene were to sponsor him.

A little over a week later, on November 17, Steve Aoki tweeted out a video revealing a special package Pantene had mailed him. The package included Pantene Oppa T-shirts, printed with a #PanteneOppaSquad’s meme…

…Pantene haircare products…
…and a handwritten letter.
Hi Pantene Oppa!
We were so psyched to find out this nickname that BTS [ARMY] has for you! “Waste It On Me” is on repeat at our office…We can’t wait to see you guys win best (hair) music video of the year.
In honor of you, we made this shirt for you and BTS. We also included some of our best products to help your hair stay smooth while you’re dropping beats.
– Your FANS at Pantene
Steve Aoki was all smiles when he showed off the letter and opened the box of Pantene products. He dug through the box, exclaiming, “Pantene for life. Woo!”.

Pantene also sent a gift package to 103.7 KISS FM, to thank the radio station for making them aware of Pantene Oppa. This gift package also included a handwritten letter…

Naturally, ARMYs are loving this latest #PanteneOppaSquad development. They’ve expressed love for Steve Aoki and pride for their fandom…
They’ve also asked their Pantene Oppa to drop some haircare tips!
