Farming ‘Gangnam-style’

30 December 2012

Farming ‘Gangnam-style’ makes Federated Farmers top-10

A video made by American farmers, as a parody of the ‘Gangnam style’ phenomenon, has made Bruce Wills top-10 farming memories for 2012.

“Can I take my hat off to those Kansas arable farmers known on YouTube as the ThePetersonFarmBros. Their video, “Farmer style,” might be a Gangnam-style parody, but what it says about farming is priceless,” says Bruce Wills, Federated Farmers President.

“It would be great to see Kiwi farmers dust off their high definition video cameras, write a script and similarly get out there in 2013. “Farmer Style” is now over a remarkable 11 million views since it was first posted to YouTube on 4 December.

“It is quite remarkable and their videos are full of positive messages about farming delivered with humour in a clever and stylish way. So much so we have told them so.

“This also inspired me to think about my top-10 positive farming memories for 2012, which I have included below,” Mr Wills concluded.
