There was a sheepstorm in Paris but it certainly wasn't in the weather forecast.
French farmers wanted to protest the European Union's agricultural policy, so what better way to get the people's attention than by marching sheep into a public space.
But not just any public space… the Lourve!!
Several farmers and one seriously cute sheepdog herded
Chipotle Satirizes Industrial Farming With Original Series Farmed And Dangerous! Watch Thought-Provoking Trailer HERE!
Chipotle is all about being progressive in the video world, like with last year's animated short film that kept making people cry (and that other one, a few years back)!
This year, however, they've gone above and beyond: they're dropping a new TV show about the horrors of industrial farming, called Farmed and Dangerous, and Hulu's gonna host it!
It's a 30 minute show, and we aren't kidding. It stars unofficial Sam Neill lookalike Ray Wise, and the show doesn't even mention Chipotle!
Chipotle happens to be one of the few major fast food chains that uses and loves sustainable agriculture and the "humane" treatment of animals — so the tone and subject of the show makes sense! Here's what the production company said about the show:
"Farmed and Dangerous is meant to strike large emotional chords — it's not about selling burritos."
The episodes start in February, and if the trailer (above) is any indication… well, this is an impressive campaign!
Ch-ch-check it out!
That's it. We're mooooooving to the UK!
British magazine Farmers Weekly is launching one helluva competition that has our milk curdling in anticipation!
That's right, they're hosting a competition Britain's Sexiest Farmer and just like our hottie farmboy like Alex Royall from Norfolk (above), there's some pretty stiff competition!
And, the contest isn't just for men! Women can enter too, and in fact, right now, out of 300 people who have entered, there are only 10 finalists left - 5 roosters, er, men and 5 hens, er, women!
According to the publication's editor:
"The competition will help to dispel the myth that farmers are old-fashioned and scruffy, and encourage more young people to consider careers in this exciting innovative and high tech sector."
Hey, if we see a sexy farmer wearing nothing but overalls, we can guarantee that he (or she) will most certainly get laid! Ha!
Check out some of the other finalists (below)!

Carrie Underwood sometimes seems unreal.
She's THAT talented.
But she's real alright.
And like all real people - she's got dreams like the rest of us.
And one of her dreams is a farm house, and she's in the middle of building one!
Here's what she said:
Rose McGowan is such a lovely, caring person!
This past weekend, she went to The Gentle Barn where she joined owners Ellie Laks and Jay Weiner in celebrating the opening of a new animal healing center.
The Gentle Barn is a non-profit organization that is a place of recovery for abused farm animals and children.
They describe themselves, saying:
The former Price Is Right host is now going up against Arkansas, Indiana, New Mexico, Nebraska, Tennessee and Pennsylvania because congressmen in those states are considering bills that would keep people who commit animal cruelty under wraps.
