Drag Queens Protest Chick-fil-A in Song Targeting chain's donations to anti-gay groups

Activists are finding more creative ways to protest corporate and government policies, with many of them turning to the do-it-yourself mass-media outlet that is YouTube. But in order to stand out in the land of a thousand cat videos, you have at least to be entertaining. Enter the drag queens, replete with outrageous costumes, chicken rap and fart jokes, to mock-protest Christian chain Chick-fil-A. In their quest for meat without the bible, Willam Belli, Detox, and Vicky Vox go for shock value by discussing being gay for pay and taking dudes from behind. Even better, it's catchy. All of which leads to a viral success fairy tale. Will Chik-fil-A stop funding right-wing organizations? No. But it does get out the word for those who wonder why Chik-fil-a is closed on Sundays.
