One viral relationship between a guy and his cow has us moving to the nearest farm. Elias Herrera, who runs the Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube accounts called @Elias_filmz, posts about his life with his bovine bestie, and social media has fallen in love.

The social media accounts @elias_filmz shows the sweet relationship between man and cow.

Elias and Bruce have a pretty close relationship. Although it's unclear how long the two have been in each other's lives, they have bonded enough that Bruce can freely make his way into Elias' home, eat at the dinner table, and even wake him up in the morning.

Much of their Instagram content together concerns Bruce eating food Elias gives him. In several of their videos, Elias tries to see if Bruce is into eating certain snacks. The cow has tried various things, including Froot Loops, Oreos, Skittles, McDonald's, pizza, and more. The duo has more than 780k followers on Instagram. Since they started TikTok, they have had a similarly large following.

Although Bruce may be the show's star, he's not the only one on stage. Elias lives on a farm along with his family and a bunch of other animals. There's another cow named Harry, several quails, goldfish, ducks, and a few dogs. And those are just the animals that have made it on camera!

People are falling in love with this dymanic duo.

Many comments on Elias' social media praise his relationship with Bruce. Across all their socials, the duo has over 1.5 million followers. In their food-related videos, people flood the comments with suggestions for new snacks for this bovine, with the following uploads featuring those new treats. It looks like Bruce has liked everything he's tried so far and is willing to eat up anything Elias offers him.

Actually, the hype has gotten so big around this friendship that they have started a Cameo. For $40 each, you can get one of the following:

  • Advice
  • Birthday Greeting
  • Pep Talk
  • Roast
  • Question Answered
  • Other

For an additional $3, you can send Elias and Bruce a message.

If you choose the "Other" option, it works the same as with other people on Cameo. Once you choose to move forward through the "Book" button, you can fill out a form with the particular info you're looking to include. If Elias and Bruce like the idea, they can make the video.

It's currently unclear where Elias and Bruce are located, or why Elias has a farm in the first place. Fans hope that Bruce and his furry friends aren't being used for milk or meat, especially because of the horrific treatment of animals used for factory farming and factory farming's negative impact on the environment.
