Conan O'Brien, L.A. Gay Men's Chorus, and The Simpsons Join Forces in September for 'The Monorail Song'


Fans of The Simpsons have something to look forward to in L.A. next month, according to an interview Conan O'Brien did with Buzzfeed UK:

Cue Farmer Derek sitting in a field alone with his trombone and blaring Lorde's number one hit "Royals." The cattle can't help but say yes, and the visual alone will have you laughing. Stick it out to the end to see just how musical these cows can be.
