-->'''Tex''': Well, then let's go get this big thing of yours.\\
'''Tucker''': Bow-chicka-bow-wow!\\
'''Tex''': Oh, shut up.\\
'''Church''': Shut up, Tucker.\\
'''Tucker''': Did somebody call for a really hairy plumber? Bow-chicka-bow-wow!\\
'''Church''': Tucker! Shut up.\\
'''Tucker''': I came here to lay some pipe. Bow-chicka-bow-wow! \\
'''Church''': Tucker!\\
'''Tucker''': So, I hear you got sisters- bow-chicka- who are twins! Wow-wow!\\
'''Church''': Shut up.\\
'''Tucker''': Hey, are you a model or famous actress? Bow-chicka-bow-wow!\\

'''Church''': ''Shut up!''\\

"Bow Chicka Wow Wow" is the sound of a character [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beatbox beatboxing]] porno music, based on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fYfdlKIon4 the funk-rock soundtracks most '70s pornos had.]] This is usually done after the character has seen or heard something lewd. Or sometimes simply imagined something lewd. Compare ThatsWhatSheSaid.

See also {{Sexophone}}. Not to be confused with the children's alphabet rhyme [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicka_Chicka_Boom_Boom Chicka Chicka Boom Boom]], nor the song "Gitchee Gitchee Goo" (which [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar does include "bow chicka wow wow"]] in its chorus) from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''. And neither is it "Gichie Gichie Yaya Dada" from ''Lady Marmalade'' song. Also not to be confused with the similarly basso register of the song [[Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff "Oh Yeah."]] Nor is it ''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang''.[[note]] Well, actually it ''is'', kind of. Originally "chitty bang bang", which was obscene (for the time) UsefulNotes/WorldWarI slang about what soldiers do when they get their leave chits, it eventually became the name of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chitty_Bang_Bang several real cars]] which inspired the novel and film. But don't tell the kids that. [[/note]]


* There's a commercial for Lynx or Axe cologne that has a girl doing this.
** For a while at least, "Bow Chicka Wow Wow" was their slogan.

* ComicBook/BlackCanary and ComicBook/{{Zatanna}} are looking in the window of a toy store that's displaying JusticeLeague action figures. Zatanna teases Black Canary by making the Black Canary and Green Arrow dolls temporary animated and has them talk to each other:
-->'''Zatanna:''' I love toys. Look who's in the window!\\
'''Black Canary:''' Oh, those. We okayed those to be sold for charity. The profits go to victims of super villains.\\
'''Zatanna:''' Uh-huh. (''magical sparks go from her finger to the toys'')\\
'''Green Arrow Doll:''' Hey, pretty bird. I ain't seen you around the [=Barbie=] aisle before.\\
'''Black Canary:''' I guess you were on reserve when we made that deal.\\
'''Zatanna:''' I'm not bitter. Bount-chicka-bount-bount.[[note]]That's how it's spelled in the comic, but the intent is clear.[[/note]]\\
'''Black Canary Doll:''' Hey yourself, Robin Hood. Is that an arrow in your quiver [[OrAreYouJustHappyToSeeMe or are you just happy to see me]]?\\
'''Zatanna:''' (''gets punched in the shoulder by Black Canary'') Ow!

* Teá does it in an episode of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries''.
** [[ItMakesSenseInContext "...Burn the witch!"]]
* So does Hanyuu in one episode of ''WebVideo/HigurashiParodyFandub'', after the principal said that he and [[{{Expy}} Chie]] will have sex in his office, instead of saving Satoko from her uncle. However, she actually said "[[{{Catchphrase}} Hau]] Chicka [[VerbalTic Hau Hau]]".
* In ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', Master Roshi says this when noticing Goku had a son.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5619147/16/Violence-Inherent-in-the-System Violence Inherent in the System]]'' Hermione dresses up like [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]] to co-teach a Defense Against the Dark Arts class and when Harry calls her into their office to "discuss a few things" one of the fourth year Gryffindor boys singsongs "Bow chicka bow wow!"

* [=McLovin=] of ''Film/{{Superbad}}'' likes to play with this.
* Done by Alvin in the first ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' film.
* The best-known arrangement of ''Series/ThreeTwoOneContact'''s theme used this.

* Rachel from ''Series/{{Friends}}'' does this in the episode "The One With the Free Porn," apparently unaware of what she's singing. Eventually she asks what it is that's been in her head all day and is told it's the theme to ''[[ParallelPornTitles Good Will Humping]]''.
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' - done by the bots when the dialog in a movie suggests a porn film segue.
** Also inverted: they add "sexy dialogue" when the music resembles this. (It was really the music of all low-budget 70s films, at least until the porn association became codified.)
* ''Series/TwoBrokeGirls ... and the Dumpster Sex'' had Max thinking it was "Brown Chicken Brown Cow".
* An episode of ''Series/{{Bones}}'' had Booth explain what Bow-Chicka-Wow-Wow Boom-Clicka-Mow-Wow meant to Bones
* Any time the scene style is 'porn' or simply 'filled with LUST!' in ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway''.
** Which of course makes it into the SpiritualSuccessor ''Series/DrewCareysImprovaganza'' in a big way.

* ''Music/ShorthandPhonetics'' literally has a track called "Bow-Wow-Chikka-Wakka-Chikka-Wakka-Chikka-Wakka, Bow-Wow-Chikka-Wakka-Chikka-Wakka-Chikka-Wakka"
* Referenced by way of {{pun}} on Trace Adkins' "Brown Chicken, Brown Cow".
* Mike Posner has a song called this. [[SarcasmMode Surprisingly]], it's about mood music. The video even resembles a '70s softcore porno.
* "Cheeka Bow Bow" by The Vengaboys.
* The Argentine band [[MeaningfulName Cumshot]] main source of inspiration is the aforementioned BowChickaWowWow soundtracks of the 70's porn flics. It's up to the listener if this is StylisticSuck or a funny and inventive whole new playground for ambient music.
* But there is little doubt about how hard does Swedish europop singer Gunther sucks.
** ''You touch my TRA-LAH-LAH!!! My ding-ding-dong!!!''. HurricaneOfEuphemisms ensues.
* The [[https://youtube.com/watch?v=XL-IPaYVcUc Fitnessgram Pacer Test soundtrack]] contains a number of examples, especially in the earlier stages.
* Since 1980s, ''Oh Yeah'' by Yello (of ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'' and ''Film/TheSecretOfMySuccess'' fame) might be the song most people would associate with this trope.
* The entire gimmick of the band Pornosonic is to play music like this, with each song listed as the theme from a different non-existent porno film from the 70s (Ron Jeremy even provides fake soundbites in between songs).

* While "Thurio's Samba" from the rock musical version of ''Theatre/TwoGentlemenOfVerona'' [[UnbuiltTrope doesn't use the exact phrase]], it adds some more explicit language between "chicka" and "wow".

* ''[[VideoGame/GuitarHero Guitar Hero III: The Legends of Rock]]'' includes an unlockable bass guitar called "Boom Chicka Wah Wah".
** And if you listen closely, this tune plays before you play any career encore in the Mitch's Moose Lounge venue (which is a strip club).
* From the [[Funny/VideoGames Crowning Moment of Funny]] page: Approximately a week or so before the ''Wrath of the Lich King'' expansion came out for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', Thrall, leader of the orcs, disappeared from his chamber for a few hours. The official forums proceeded to speculate on what he was doing and where he was during that time. This led to many responses simply saying "Jaina". But the absolute best was in response to one of these, where the poster simply wrote "Bow-chicka-lok-tar"
* Perhaps taken to a literal extreme with the UsefulNotes/DSiWare game ''Spotto!'', where the titular bird character must rescue a [[IncrediblyLamePun hot chick]] by the name of "Chikkie Wowwow".
* When breeding sheep in ''VideoGame/FarmVille'' your sheeps' sprites in the pen will be replaced with a sign reading "Baa chicka-wow wow!" while they're, um... busy.
* "Bow Chicka Wow Wow" appears on screen as a form of censoring while [[Videogame/AbobosBigAdventure Abobo]] is having his way with Annie the mermaid. Too bad we can't see how he managed to avoid TheMermaidProblem ...

* "Bow-chicka-bow-wow" became a catchphrase of the character Tucker on ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', to the point that even his alien baby said it. (Well, "Blarg-Chicka-Honk-Honk", but close enough.)
** [[TheDitz Caboose]] tries unsuccessfully, with "Hey Chicka Bump Bump."
** Jeff Williams, the main music director for Roosterteeth works, including {{WebAnimation/RWBY}}, even made the catchphrase its own song in the Season 9 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8J3_It1gE8 soundtrack.]]

* In one ''Webcomic/BrunoTheBandit'' strip this was the call of the [[http://www.brunothebandit.com/d/20030210.html Pornmonster]].
* Different sound for the same thing in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'':
-->'''Zeetha:''' Hey, Skifander's patron Goddess is Ashtara, she who controls, among other things, fertility. Our holy-days are fun! ~Cha cha cha!~

* In his review of a pair of comics where Franchise/{{Superman}} and [[ComicBook/NewGods Big Barda]] are {{Mind Control}}led into [[RapeAsDrama filming a porno]], [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] threatens violence upon anyone who posts "Bow Chicka Wow Wow" in the comments section.
* Used by Website/{{Cracked}} to describe the [[http://www.cracked.com/article_16133_the-5-historical-figures-who-died-weirdest-deaths.html weird death]] of French president [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%A9lix_Faure Felix Faure]], who on February the 16th 1899 expired from a heart attack [[OutWithABang while having sex with his mistress in his office.]]
* Lampshaded in Creator/{{Roosterteeth}}'s Rage Quit episode featuring ''Toy Stunt Bike'':
-->'''Michael:''' Fuckin' porno music right here! Bow chicka chicka wow wow, da-na-na-na-na-na, ridin' yo bike, ''over a FUCKING GODDAMN '''BLOCK!!!'''''
* This is the music used in the ''WebVideo/SimplyNailogical'' video intro, accompanying "polish porn" of nail bottles spilling.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** Stewie does this during "Screwed the Pooch," when Brian runs out onto a greyhound track and has sex with Lois' father's prize dog.
** When Brian goes to Hollywood to become a writer and get a gig directing porn: [[ParallelPornTitles he gets a]] Woody for best director. The best score Woody included two lounge lizards and Music/JohnWilliams.
* One OnTheNext spot for ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'' was nothing but Joan and Cleo in a catfight with the narrator Bow Chicka Wow Wow-ing over it.
* Bender does this in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''.
* In season 3, [[EvilMatriarch Malory]] WesternAnimation/{{Archer}} [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave admires herself]] in the mirror, wearing [[FanDisservice nothing]] but a trenchcoat. She flatters herself with a "You still got it. Bow chicka wow wow."
* In ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'', when Bill's career as a competitive eater is over, Dale uses this (in a slight variation) to console him with the fact that he got lucky with his groupie. Yeah, not so much...
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': a main part of the chorus of the song "Gitchee Gitchee Goo", about a man trying to work out if their girlfriend loves him, is "bow chicka wow wow". Coincidence, or a case of GettingCrapPastTheRadar? You decide.
