Here’s a story that needs little introduction, and that’s because it’s story of a saxophone-wielding dad with a dream and the group of cows who gathered in awe of his playing.

This week, the internet met Rick Herrmann, thanks to his daughter, Erin Herrmann, who wisely took to Twitter with this to say about his impromptu sax performance for a field filled with a large group of cows.

“My parents are such goofs they drove out to the backroads so my dad could play the cows the songs he’s been learning on the saxophone,” Erin captioned the two-part video series on Twitter.

Why did he do it? “For fun! He loves cows and he’s been learning the saxophone for a while so he wanted to see if they liked his music,” Erin told TIME.

The cows? Impressed. People on Twitter? Equally so. The inaugural video racked up thousands of retweets rocketing up the saxophone player to newly minted viral status 778,000 likes as of Friday morning.

He even played “Tequila.”

If you’ve been asking the skies where the song of summer is, look no further than this random cow field.

Someone even invoked the “Tequila” meme man to get in on the fun.

Hermman did not immediately respond to TIME’s request for comment on this story.
