Greg Peterson on Becoming Famous and their Newest Katy Perry-dy, “Chore”

The Peterson Farm Bros became an internet sensation overnight, with the release of their first parody, “I’m Farming and I Grow It” on June 25, 2012. Within a week of its release, the video went viral, and while still in shock, they were flown to New York City and back for an appearance on Fox News.
