According to Yahoo! News, the man playing “Jingle Bells,” Derek Klingenberg, is a real farmer. He grew up in Kansas and studied agriculture in school. But he’s also always been quite musical. He sang in choir and played trombone in the school marching band.
Derek started Klingenberg Farms Studios to make parody films, and his unusual form of cow-calling is just a side hobby.
The Huffington Post reports that Klingenberg also plays a cover of Lorde’s “Royals” for the cow’s listening pleasure.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, not all cows are so easily corralled. An ultra-aggressive species of cows, bred by the Nazis, was causing troubles for farmers in Europe. Those cows were designed to be the resurrected versions of the now-extinct Auroch. Aurochs are the wild predecessors of modern cattle, but they have not been seen in Europe since the 17th century.
Derek’s trombone herding skills would likely prove ineffective against the beasts, but it would be interesting to see if “Jingle Bells” could soothe the violent Nazi herds.
