Oh, how the mighty have fallen…
Mason Ramsey was the talk of the town this time last year.
He was droppin’ song after song, jumpin’ on the remix of “Old Town Road” with Lil Nas X and Billy Ray, shootin’ his shot at the girls from Stranger Things, posting swag-tastic pics like this one… Yodel Kid had come a long way since singing in the aisles of Walmart, but lately, we haven’t heard much from him.
And now, he’s BACK… in a Burger King commercial… singing about… cows farting?
Burger King just launched an initiative to combat the negative effects that the beef industry unleashes on the environment. Long story short, cow farts release the greenhouse gas methane, which is a direct contributor to global warming.
Here’s what the folks at BK has to say about the project:
Burger King is announcing its work to help address a core industry challenge: the environmental impact of beef. Livestock is responsible for up to 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Cows release methane, a greenhouse gas that traps the sun’s heat and warms the planet as a by-product of their digestion. To help tackle this environmental issue, the Burger King brand partnered with top scientists to develop and test a new diet for cows, which according to initial study results, on average reduces up to 33% of cows’ daily methane emissions per day during the last 3 to 4 months of their lives.
It seems like the revolutionary breakthrough is just adding lemongrass to the cow’s diet… I don’t know, I’m not a scientist or a cattle rancher.
But either way, it’s a noble endeavor. And let’s be honest…
This song is more country than 90% of the shit (no pun intended) that’s on country radio.
