Teen yodeler and country music performer Mason Ramsey sings about cow-based greenhouse gas emissions in this offbeat Burger King music video directed by Michel Gondry via Partizan Entertainment for agency We Believers.

Burger King is going more eco-friendly with its BK Cows Menu featuring a Whopper made from cows that are fed an increased diet of lemongrass, which cuts methane bovine emissions by a third. These emissions represent more than a stinky problem; the methane contributes significantly to overheating our planet.

“When cows fart and burp and splatter/well it ain’t no laughing matter,” Ramsey sings. At one point, Ramsey puts on a gas mask while crooning to show that Earth can become uninhabitable if methane emissions aren’t controlled.

We Believers CCO Gustavo Lauria teamed with Steve Mudd on the lyrics for the Ramsey-performed song, with Pickle Music serving as music house and publisher, and Alexis Estiz as composer.
