Cows Love Lorde

By James Rettig / August 4, 2014 - 7:21 pm

Everyone seems to be enamored with 17-year-old wunderkind Lorde, both humans and bovines alike. Farmer Derek Klingenberg, who has amassed a decent Facebook following for doing this sort of thing before, sits down in an empty field and begins to play a somber version of “Royals” on his trombone. Nothing happens for a good minute, but soon you begin to see cattle dot the horizon. They approach slowly at first, timid but curious about their serenader. By the end, they’re practically running towards the source of the tune and, dare I say, dancing along just a little bit. It’s an oddity in the viral video world in that nothing really happens, but it’s all worth it for that final few seconds of a full audience of cows looking on at the trombone player, mooing and begging for an encore. Perhaps this was another #myspacesecretshow?
