My timing was impeccable.  Even if I’d seen this tweet from earlier, I’d have had no idea of its significance:

May have just completed the most ridiculous/awesome work of my career. Will go to air tonight.

But it all soon became clear.  Or clear-ish.
We will fight for bovine freeeeedom and hold our large heads high!!! #trolldj #lvdt

Well, at least the other half of Les Vaches du Tour was showing true grit on a school night, and was rewarded for that commitment.  But… best cow montage ever?  There was more do it than just the song?  Seems so.  The “ridiculous/awesome” work Alex Cassimaty had tweeted about earlier was to put together a tribute to the cows we’ve all seen so far on the Tour, matching the lyrics of Cows with Guns perfectly to images. Chickens? Done. Choppers? Sorted. And, of course, cows.

And there’s your #LVDT dose for today. #trolldj #sbstdf

We’re glad Twitter went appreciatively crazy.  It was a sensational effort.  We could not be happier!  And here it is, for those of you who haven’t seen it (or for all of you who, like me, can’t get enough of it!): Cows on Tour

    Boo. I totally got ‘Geoblocked’ from the video! Hellooooo…I’m IN France, how is it not relevant that I see something so cowmazing from the Tour de FRANCE?! Crushed. 🙂
