If you’re walking down the street and you hear a scream coming from an alleyway, it’s probably not what you think it is. It’s probably a goat. You heard right. A goat, the little barnyard animal with horns and hooves.
Unless you live under a rock like everybody’s favorite starfish, you’ve probably seen a video of a goat yelling. One of the more famous videos is the most recent Doritos Super Bowl commercial staring a lovable, yet ticked off goat who’s out of Doritos. The commercial ends with a goat kicking the door shut and trapping the man who hid all of his chips from him in a room. I don’t know about any of you, but I feel like an angry goat is not something to mess with.
Well, these goats have left the farm and are currently featuring in some of the greatest pop songs out right now. You might not understand what I’m getting at, so let me break it down for you. Upon realizing that goats have a very human-like ability to yell, people have taken to the internet to remix some of the country’s most popular songs with a touch of goat flare.
A few of my current favorites are Miley Cyrus’ “Party In The USA,” Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” and Whitney Houston’s classic, “I Will Always Love You.” I actually played it in my office just now, and it gets me every single time.
Forget about the bird, I think goat is definitely the new word, at least as far as the internet is concerned. Do you think you can find something funnier than yelling goats on the internet? I urge you to try. If you find something great, send us an email and just maybe, your idea will end up in a story, too.
Until then, I would encourage all of you to jump on the yelling goat bandwagon. Just don’t watch a video if you’re someplace quiet, like the library.
