Kansas farmer and YouTube sensation Derek Klingenberg is at it again.

In a video he posted on Sunday, he writes that he “serenaded the cows with a little trombone this morning.”

He let loose with a version of Lorde’s monster hit, “Royals.” And apparently the cows are fans, too.

Klingenberg, who lives with his family in Peabody, Kan., first found viral fame last year with his YouTube parody of “The Fox (“What Does the Fox Say)?”

His version, “What Does the Farmer Say?” scooped up more than 4 million views within two months of its release.

“It’s weird,” Klingenberg told The Kansas City Star about all the attention. “Millions of people all over the world watch my stuff, but I haven’t left the farm. I’m just reading about it on my phone.”

There’s a little surprise at the end of this video that some of you sports fans might enjoy.
