What’s Up With the Chicken Fat Song [VIDEO]

If you have watched any kind of sporting events lately you probably have seen the ad for the iphone that features that catchy tune with the lyrics “go you chicken fat go.”Well I wanted to know where the song came fron and why it was in that ad which is promoting fitness. It turns out it made a lot more sense than I thought. It turns out the song is actually called Chicken Fat.”

It was recorded by Robert Preston, you know the star of The Music Man.  It is also known as “The Youth Fitness Song.” Composed for President Kennedy’s Youth Physical Fitness Program. Preston recorded the song with a full orchestra

Recordings of this song were sent to school districts throughout the United States in 1961 to accompany the official U.S. Physical Fitness program of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness.
