CLYMER - What do you get if you combine Carly Rae Jepsen with an adorable 9-year-old farmer? The result is "Farm It Maybe." The current view tally of the "Call Me Maybe" parody YouTube video is over 86,000, and that number is sure to continue to skyrocket after Justin and Fred White of Clymer appear on Fox News to discuss the video.
It's easy to see how the video became so popular. Filmed by Justin, an 18-year-old recent high school graduate, and starring his brother, Fred, the video chronicles an average day for a farmer through Carly Rae Jepsen's infectious pop song. Fred exercises his vocal cords on lyrics written by his brother and cousins, such as:
"My crops are growin'
Ripped jeans, knees are showin'
In the parlor, milk's a flowin'
Where you think you're going baby?"
The duo are by no means new to the world of viral videos. They have been filming "Lil' Fred's" exploits since 2008, and their channel has 42 videos, over 3,000 subscribers and almost 700,000 total views. Justin shared why he loves producing content for YouTube.
"I enjoy spending time with my brother," he said. "I like to make people laugh and share videos with the world."
Needless to say, the brothers are excited about their upcoming appearance on Fox News.
"Fred is a little nervous," said Justin.
The boys were scheduled to be interviewed on this morning, but Fox and Friends has rescheduled the interview for next week due to the Colorado shooting.
"Farm It Maybe" was inspired by another farm parody, "Farming and I Grow It," by Kansas State University's Greg Peterson.
"My cousins and I saw that video and thought, we should definitely do another farming parody," said Justin. "I want to inspire dairy farmers everywhere."
The video's parting words to dairy farmers?
"Hey, I just milked you, and this is crazy
To be a farmer, you cant be lazy
And all the other farms are just as charming
What can I say, that's dairy farming!"
