Lorde’s “Royals” Will Make The Cows Come Home….Literally!


(PCM) A Kansas farmer by the name of Derek Klingenberg has recently posted a video of himself playing a version of “Royals” by Lorde on his trombone in the middle of a field. As he is playing the song, all of a sudden it appears that dozens of cows are summoned up over the hill as they hear the music. 

The video has now been viewed over 3 million times on Youtube and while it seems that the cows are attracted to Klingerberg’s amazing trombone skills, in actuality he admits that they have learned that hearing the song means that they will be getting a molasses treat.

Klingenberg does say that the “cows are a good audience and are curious about the music”. He especially loves some of the call and response antics that occur between him and the cows. It is truly hilarious!

Klingerberg has been a trombone player since the age of five and this is not his first tombone playing video to hit viral status on the internet. He has taken on trombone versions of songs by Kesha, Miley Cyrus and more. His version of the viral hit “What Does The Fox Say, racked up more than five million views.
