What do you get when you cross a Japanese yodeler with chickens?

An epic music music video, duh! I found this awesome YouTube video of Takeo Ishi, a Japanese guy who was raised in Tokyo. I couldn’t find much info on him except on a German Wikipedia page, so hopefully nothing has been lost in translation!

He studied engineering, but during his spare time he learned to yodel from records by yodeler Franz Lang. His unique talent landed him on Japanese television. He then moved to Europe at some point, and sang in a restaurant in Switzerland. Then his idol, Franz Lang,  mentored him after hearing Ishi sing.

I’m not familiar with the yodeling genre, but he sounds pretty darn good! However, I’m a little bit confused about the chickens.
