There's very little in life that escapes social media - as Delta Goodrem would know - so this latest take on Lorde's monster hit Royals is bizarre but entirely appropriate given the absurd online melting point of what the human race thinks might be a good idea to put out there. 

Quite why this person felt the world at large needed to be aware of his decidedly average animal-bothering talents is, frankly, a mystery. 

The video, posted on YouTube on Sunday is aptly titled "Serenading the Cattle with My Trombone" and is the handiwork of "Farmer Derek Klingenberg" who apparently lives in Kansas. 

It's a bit slow, and his trombone playing is pretty below par. About 50 seconds in, a lone cow appears over the horizon but by about three minutes he has a full crowd assembled, plus some latecomers rushing in at the back. 

Nearly 150,000 people have taken time out of their busy lives to click on the clip and enlighten their lives with the knowledge of how a herd of cows might respond to Royals via a brass instrument.

What next? We look forward to a uklele version of Iggy Azalea's Fancy played to a chimp enclosure. Or how about 5SOS's She Looks So Perfect on kazoo for the benefit of an alpaca farm? Any takers? Anyone?
