Chacarron Macarron (usually shortened to Chacarron) is a hit pseudo-Spanish language song. The song is by Panamanian artists Rodney Clark and Andy De La Cruz. Clark is known as "El Chombo." He is the self-described "Godfather of the Reggaeton sound," best known for Lorna's 2003 hit "Papi Chulo." De La Cruz is also known as Andy Val Gourmet. The song has gained popularity on the Internet because of its nonsense lyrics (which despite sounding vaguely English, are nothing but gibberish, earning him the nickname of "El Mudo" [The Mute]) and odd music video (which contains similar elements to Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" video, and Black Eyed Peas' Hey Mama video), with an excerpt featured on many sites. Andy’s mumbled vocals were originally laid down as a rough skit with a view to writing "proper" lyrics later but because many loved what he had recorded, they decided to keep the original version[citation needed].

Since then many internet sites (often from YTMND) have juxtaposed the song with humorous videos of various figures and characters, such as dancing stormtroopers, Batman, Mario, Shrek or Yoko from The Grudge. The most famous YTMND usage of the Chacarron Macarron audio track is called "Ualuealuealeuale", an onomatopoeia of the gibberish hook, and features animated GIFs of various clips of Batman dancing and appearing to mumble the lyrics (the footage used is of actor Adam West dancing the "Batusi" in an early episode of the 1960s Batman TV series).

BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills started a campaign on October 30, 2006 to get the song to #1 in the UK singles chart. A link was put up on the BBC website to the video on YouTube. Although the song did not reach the top, the campaign pushed the song all the way up to #20, which became its peak.

A similar song, "Chacarron Macarron", appeared as the first track of Yahari's album Las + Bailables de .... Yahari.[1]

It is one of the current at-bat songs of New York Mets shortstop José Reyes, Cleveland Indians third baseman Andy Marte, and Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus. Additionally, Arizona Diamondbacks Catcher Miguel Montero used this song in the 2007 season.

The song contains a sample from "The Breaks" by Kurtis Blow.
