Viral Video of the Day: Farmer Summons Cattle With ‘Royals’ Cover

Farmer plays Lorde hit on trombone until the cows come home—literally

You’ve never seen a cattle call like this one.

Derek Klingenberg is a farmer who occasionally posts YouTube song parodies. In today’s video, he becomes the latest to cover Lorde’s ubiquitous anthem of the working class, ‘Royals.’ Instead of spoofing it, Farmer Derek plays it on trombone in an open field. While his trombone skills are decent, he certainly draws a crowd—or rather, a herd. His cattle slowly amass from beyond the horizon to see what’s going on.

If Lorde’s pop career ever fades, this video provides evidence that she might be able to rebrand herself as a singing cowgirl.
