What do you get when you combine a catch Beach Boys parody with dairy farmers?

The answer: a viral music video that benefits more than just the dairy industry.

In the wake of their successful “Feedin’ A Nation” parody music video, the Midwest Dairy Association has donated $20,000 to Feed America. This donation will provide 160,000 meals around the country.

“Food is a universal cause, and providing our growing population with nutritious, affordable food is one of our greatest challenges,” Jerry Messer, chairmen of the Midwest Dairy Association Board, said in a news release. “As dairy farmers, we recognize we have a shared responsibility in the health of future generations and are committed to being part of the solution.”

The video, as seen above, was created to increase awareness about the commitment and passion of dairy farmers as they help feed the nation. Set to the tune of “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys, the video featured more than 65 dairy farmers and was filmed at dairies across the Midwest.

As of June 7, the video has been seen nearly 77,000 times on YouTube.
