The Peterson brothers, a clan of Kansas farm boys, were made instant stars when their video called, “I’m Farming And I Grow it,” -- a parody to the popular song, “I’m Sexy And I Know It,” went viral. As a result of their clever agriculture advocacy efforts, this trio was featured on national news outlets such as FOX and The Today Show. Their creativity is on display again, with another video parody -- this time to the hit single, “Gangnam Style.”
You can watch the Peterson boys' original video, which has exceeded 7.2 million hits.
Their latest effort is also likely to garner a few hits on YouTube, once again providing agricultural insight in a creative way to a segment that greatly needs it. Check out the video below.
Such creativity appears to a growing trend among young people who want to get involved in agriculture and are using online social media tools to share their stories. I guarantee you that these young people are making farmers and ranchers look cool again.
