AJ started listening to the Chicken Dance song at 9 a.m. Thursday and he will listen to it until 9 a.m. Friday. Every time the event reaches a $10,000 donation mark, a bubble machine goes off and he dances in an inflatable chicken outfit

“Right now I’m starting to lose it a little bit since I’ve been listening to it since 9 a.m.,” AJ told News 8 Thursday afternoon. “And now it’s when I don’t know what time it is anymore about 1 or 2 a.m. when I’ve been listening to it for a good portion I think, yeah, it’s probably a good chance I snap.”
