06-28-12 “I’m Farming and I Grow It a YouTube Hit”…The Peterson Bros of Kansas…
Posted by Brian Allmer on June 28, 2012
Now a YouTube video gone viral – “I’m Farming and I Grow It” started with one guy having a little fun with a song while hanging out at a Sonic in Manhattan, Kansas. Greg Peterson came up with the lyrics and then persuaded his younger brothers to record the song and appear in the video. Peterson posted the video Monday evening and it went viral in 24 hours with 23-thousand views. Just three hours after that – perhaps aided by an endorsement on the Facebook page of Senator Pat Roberts – the video had passed 53-thousand views. The parody music video that promotes agriculture now stands at more than 889-thousand views. Peterson has been amazed at the reaction. He says they are hearing from people all over the country.
The Peterson brothers actually have several videos depicting various aspects of farm life.
Their YouTube channel is ThePetersonFarmBros.
