'Chow Down (At Chick-Fil-A),' Wilson Phillips Drag Spoof, Parodies Fast Food Chain's 'Anti-Gay' Controversy (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A trio of drag queens is taking musical inspiration from the ongoing Chick-fil-A "anti-gay" controversies with their new video.

Parodying the 1990 Wilson Phillips hit "Hold On," the clip is titled "Chow Down (at Chick-fil-A)," and features the gals driving around a Southern California cityscape and into a drive-thru in a convertible.

"Someday somebody's gonna make you wanna gobble up a waffle fry...chow down at Chick-fil-A, even if you're gay," the group croons, before transitioning into a rap inspired by TLC's "Waterfalls."

Eagle-eyed viewers will note that "RuPaul's Drag Race" contestant Willam stars as Chynna Phillips. In another clever girl-group nod, the drag queens also splash around in the Electric Fountain in Beverly Hills, which became iconic after being featured in the Go-Go's 1981 "Our Lips Are Sealed" video, as well as in the hit film "Clueless," starring Alicia Silverstone.

Chick-fil-A's reported support of financial support of Focus On The Family, Exodus International, and the Family Research Council, among other groups, has sparked controversy among customers nationwide. As a result, protests against the fast food chain have taken place on various college campuses in recent weeks, including Loyola University and New York University.

Still, in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy defended his company, calling blogosphere reports on company donations "folklore." The son of company founder Truett Cathy, he went on to note, "We're not anti-anybody. Our mission is to create raving fans."
