Taking a Weird Al-like spin on the recent Korean hit by Psy, "Gangnam Style," a few Kansas farm boys filmed "Farmer Style," a rap-umentary of life on the American plains.
That's enough to make you famous in Kansas, where the Peterson brothers call home. Greg, Nathan and Kendal first got their start with "I'm Farming and I Grow It," a parody of LMFAO's "I'm Sexy and I Know It" released earlier this year. Their first YouTube hit garnered nearly 8 million views, while Farmer Style — now in its second week — is already at 7.7 million views.
Students at Kansas State in Manhattan, Kan., the two older Peterson brothers were recently honored at a K-State halftime show for their agricultural rap video. They apparently made the film over Thanksgiving break and released it shortly afterward.
"The last one we didn't know it was going to go so big," Nathan told KSN News. "[The halftime show] was a lot of fun, we've always been big K-State fans."
With dancing farmhands and hay a-flyin', "Farmer Style" is the ultimate redneck moment of the week.
