Chances are that by now, you’ve seen the red-hot viral video
of the Utah jazz band New
Hot 5 playing music to entertain a herd of cows while on a trip to
If, like me, you’ve always thought that “The Utah Jazz” was
a strange name for an NBA team, the charming sight of these cows gathering to
listen to “When the Saints Go Marching In” might change your mind.
Inspired by the band’s act of kindness to these arts-loving
animals too often viewed merely as raw materials for hamburgers, PETA came up
with five hot new reasons to make music for cows instead of eating them:
- Unlike the chattering, smoking,
drink-swilling crowds at nightclub gigs, cows really pay attention when you
play for them.
- Cows know where to find the best
grass—for grazing, that is. (What did you think we meant?)
- Cows never shout out requests
for “Freebird” (although chickens might).
- Music is good for your heart,
while meat is a
disaster for your cardiovascular health.
- Cows will never approach you after a show and try to slip
you a demo tape by their cover band, “The Moo Fighters.”
Sounds like it’s time to dust off the old saxophone. But
while PETA can’t help you master chord progressions, you’ll find plenty of help
here to kick the meat
habit for good!
