Beyonce bowlers channel hit song to protest council
ALL the bowling ladies put your hands up!
That's what three members of the Chadstone Bowls Club are hoping for after channelling pop star Beyone in a hilarious video protesting the local council's proposal to tear down their beloved club.
Terry Foster, 82, Janine Hall, 82, and Wyn Hewett, 72, star in a remake of Beyonce's 2008 hit 'Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)' in an effort to catch the attention of Stonnington Council in Melbourne.
The council have nominated area surrounding the club as the preferred site for a proposed new $25 million indoor stadium.
But the trio are not having a part of it - no no no, no no no, no no no, no no no!
In the video, the trio perform dance moves styled from the award-winning original with some rejigged lyrics - thanks to Save Chaddy Bowls committee member Denise Wallish.
"Cause we're bowlers and you can't take this away from us," the trio sing as they hold their bowls aloft.
"Now we're mad and you won't get away with it."
Despite their unfamiliarity with the original song and choreography, the trio amazingly filmed the video in a single afternoon.
Since being uploaded to Facebook on Saturday, the video has been viewed more than 12,000 times and has been shared by more than 11,000 people.
You can help the trio by signing the petition to save the Chadstone Bowls Club.
