Wikipedia

A Japanese electro-pop artist, Susumu Hirasawa, announced that he used a female VOCALOID in the original soundtrack of film by Satoshi Kon on his blog. Since Susumu Hirasawa did not reveal which VOCALOID he used for quite some time, except the fact it was a female, many producers speculated it was MEIKO. However, he later mentioned in a magazine interview that it was LOLA.[2]

"product misplacemANT", the ninth episode in the third season of Disney Channel's A.N.T. Farm, features the character Chyna losing her phone and having to enter a karaoke competition to get it back.
