"Chacarron Macarron" (usually shortened to "Chacarron") is a song by Panamanian artists Rodney Clark (El Chombo) and Andy de la Cruz (also known as Andy Val Gourmet).

The song that apparently inspired the El Chombo / Andy Val Gourmet version, also called "Chacarron Macarron", appeared as the first track of Yahari's album Las + Bailables de .... Yahari in 2005.[1]

The song reached the top 20 on the UK Singles Chart in December 2006.[2]

Internet popularity[edit]

The song first came into media view when the chorus of it was used on a YTMND page by the name of "Ualuealuealeuale" which was created sometime in late 2005. It contained a .gif of Batman played by Adam West being drugged on a scene of the 1966 series' first episode. The page also gained popularity on YouTube with a reupload of it gaining millions of views.

The song mainly gained popularity on the Internet because of its nonsensical lyrics and odd music video, in which the lyrics are almost entirely gibberish consisting of various onomatopoeic sounds, such as the "uale" noise, earning de la Cruz (Andy Val) the nickname of "The Mute" ("El Mudo" in Spanish), but due to a mispronunciation, he also earned the nickname of "El Mundo", and the song was subsequently used in numerous viral videos and YouTube Poops during the 2000s and onward. One particular video involved a loop of Nintendo character Mario headbanging from a Singapore Airlines advert.
