Cows Love Lorde, Apparently

"Royals" makes a surprisingly effective cattle call when played on trombone

Colin Joyce

Jack White and "Weird Al" Yankovic have both recently shown their love for Lorde's 2013 track "Royals," but an even more surprising crew of fans show their support in a video recently uploaded to YouTube. As MTV News notes, a farmer (who specializes in farming-themed parodies of pop songs) shared the latest in a never-ending string of covers of Lorde's inescapable hit, reducing the sparse track to nothing more than a simple trombone part. It's really not much to behold until a bunch of bovine fans come running from the hills, apparently stoked to hear the Pure Heroine standout. In any case, his musical abilities are at least on par with the rapping cattle auctioneer's. Watch the clip above.
