Yodeler Takeo Ischi Sings New Bibi-chicken

Well-known and loved for decades, the television/radio star yodeler Takeo Ishi is now going viral on the internets with this hilarious WTF and beautiful music video entitled: "New Bibi-chicken":



Ishi began yodeling as a student and practiced in the mountains of Japan. He joined the "Alpine Yodeling" club and wound up on Japanese TV in a short time. He then went to Switzerland and sang in a restaurant for tourists and was immediately hired. That was the beginning of a 20+ year singing career in Europe. Along the way he teamed up with master yodeler Franzl Lang and since then has appeared on numerous TV and radio shows throughout Europe. Now he is becoming very popular on the web. He lives in Germany with his family and is very highly regarded as an amazing talent in the genre of yodel music.
