Chicken Noodle Soup, Anyone?
by Ife Oshun ·
Well if you didn’t know about the new dance craze out of Harlem, U.S.A., here’s the scoop. It’s called Chicken Noodle Soup and it’s all over the place, including YouTube and BET.
Basically the song of the same name chants lyrics like “Let it rain!, Clear it out!” and has inspired this nutty looking wobble leg wop. As a result, you can go to the oh-so-ripe-for-a-lawsuit YouTube, and see jillions of videos of homies doing the chicken noodle soup… In the streets, on the corner, in churches… in the bedroom… everywhere.
BET takes it one better. They’re sponsoring a talent search where you can submit your video of you and your friends doing the chicken noodle soup. The best ones get to sport their skills on BET On Blast and/or 106 & Park.
We think the song is like those old-school New York jams from back in the day (think Frankie Smith’s “Double Dutch Bus”) even though it has that snap music vibe. You gotta love Young B on this track, taking it waaaay back. As for the dance… there’s nothing old school about it.Take a listen and a look and tell us what you think of this.
