E-I-E-I…Go! Lang Diesel, Inc.® Kicking Off First ‘On the Farm’ Karaoke Contest

Family owned business calling on farm families to find harmony during harvest by submitting videos

(HAYS, KS) September 6, 2016 — As harvest season shifts into high gear, one of AGCO’s top performing dealers is putting the fun into farming, and is calling on area farmers and their families for help. Hays, Kansas based Lang Diesel, Inc. is starting a three-week long social media singing competition on Thursday, Sept. 8, called LDI’s On the Farm Karaoke Contest. The contest is a spinoff of the popular carpool karaoke videos taking the internet by storm, but encourages people to play along from a piece of their own equipment and gives them a shot at a substantial prize.

To participate, individuals or groups will climb in their cab and record a video singing karaoke to a song of their choice. Next, they will enter the contest by posting the video to LDI’s Facebook page. People may also enter by visiting LDI at the Kansas State Fair, running Sept. 9 – 18, in Hutchinson, Kan. The LDI booth will be located at 212 – 214 Lake Talbott Ave., where LDI employees can help visitors record videos from machinery on display and upload entries on their behalf.  Only appropriate entries will be accepted and all explicit or profane content will be removed at the discretion of LDI.

After the contest ends on Friday, Sept. 30, and LDI has received all submissions, the public will use Facebook to vote on their favorites. Voting will run from Oct. 1 – 8, and users may vote once per day to narrow entries down to five finalists. A panel of neutral judges will choose one contest winner, who will receive a free Arctic Cat 150 ATV valued around $3,800 and suitable for riders ages 14+. The four remaining finalists will all receive a prize package courtesy of LDI.

“We think the On the Farm Karaoke Contest is a unique way to bring families and farmers together during the stressful harvest season, and celebrates all of the success in agriculture that often spans multiple generations,” said LDI Marketing Director Shelly Macumber. “We hope people let loose, get creative and have some fun with their entries because at LDI, we know we cannot wait to watch them.”
