When one thinks of cattle herding, one generally thinks of a dog racing around yapping at cows until they go in the right direction. This inventive farmer however, has found that cattle can be herded in less traditional ways: He herds cows by playing Lorde on the trombone, specifically, her international smash hit "Royals". At what looks like early dawn, the man takes a seat on a fold out chair in the middle of an empty field. With the sun pinkish on the horizon, he begins to play, and something marvelous happens. Little black dots begin to appear, one by one, over the rise of the land, until eventually a herd of cows can be distinguished approaching. Eventually, there's an entire herd of cows standing obediently before him.
It brings to mind the pied piper, although instead of rats and children, we're talking cows. The docile bovines just love that Lorde played on a woodwind, I guess. It's a creative way to approach cattle farming, although I'm sure it doesn't suit everyone considering not everyone knows how to play the trombone. Although it could be an interesting experiment to see what other instruments and songs cows respond to. Maybe something like "Under The Milky Way" or "Cream". I'm just spitballing here.
Watch the magic below:
Because I love puns so much, here are some more songs that should be tried out on cows:
1. "Milkshake" by Kelis
2. "Peaches N Cream" by Snoop Dogg
3. "Cowboy" by Kid Rock
4. "Cigarettes & Chocolate Milk" by Rufus Wainwright
5. "Milk It" by Nirvana
