    Anyone else really like this commercial?

    Here it is for those who haven't seen it:

    On a side note, the first time I heard it while watching a game I thought they were saying chickensh*t and was thinking like "wow I guess they can just say '*****' in commercials now" lol about half way through the 3rd time I saw the commercial I realized what they were actually singing.

    I'm pretty sick of it now. I've been hearing it at least twice everyday since it came out. :eek: It's like they're trying to motivate me or something. :p.

    I really like the campaign in general though.

    What the hell is a chicken fat anyway?? I don't get it. The song distracts from the commercial.

    Mediocre commercial, awful song, and not at all related to the World Cup.

    Pretty much sums up my thoughts.

    Chicken fat is fat in your body. :p

    Here is some background info for anyone that's interested:

    http://www.tuaw.com/2014/07/02/go-you-chicken-fat-go-the-story-of-the-youth-fitness-song/

    Basically it was for a fitness initiative during the John F. Kennedy era. And it was written and preformed by Meredith Willson and Robert Preston who were known for The Music Man (a musical) at the time.

    Was implying that it's aired during the World Cup.

    I'm surprised that a lot of you don't like it, I think it's a lot better than the other World Cup commercials and other ones that Apple put out recently.

    The song really annoys me. It makes me think of actual fat on chicken meat... Eugh.

    I much prefer their other iPhone ads recently, like Gigantic, and the one where the teenager looked like he was always on his phone but was actually making a family film. That one was great.
