You know when you find your song of the summer and you play that jam over and over and over again … until the cows come home?

That's what this man did.

Kansas farmer Derek Klingenberg posted a video online that's been viewed 1.1 million times. In it, he's playing "Royals" by Lorde on his trusty trombone, which seemingly summoned dozens of young cows from across an open field.

And as lovely as his playing may be, Klingenberg admits that "when they hear it, they know they're getting a treat" a snack made of molasses. But, he adds, "They're curious. They're a good audience."

And they really get into it. I especially enjoy the bonus call and response bit at the end to "Let's Go Band!"

Klingenberg has been playing the trombone since the age of 5 and was part of the Kansas State University Marching Band. He is sort of a Weird Al of country music, having done other songs on YouTube: parodies of tunes by Kesha, Psy, and Miley Cyrus. His most famous cover is his take on "What Does the Fox Say," which tallied over 5 million views.
