What’s The Fox Say? The Most Informative Music Video Ever Has The Answer.
Please enjoy (or at least stare confusedly at) this music video, “The Fox”, from the Norwegian talk show I kveld med YLVIS. It answers the question, “What would happen if you made a schmaltzy pop song with high production values then devolved into silly animal sounds?” Nobody asked the question, but they answered it anyway.
Sketch group Ylvis is the brothers B rd and Vegard Ylvis ker, who have been making surreal and funny stuff like this for the past 13 years. (Sidenote: “B rd Ylvis ker” is the Norwegianist name that’s ever Norwegianed.) Once in a while, something they make starts going viral outside Norway, like their “voice controlled elevator” pranks. This absurd video seems poised to be a crossover hit. The top YouTube comment is, “Play this at my funeral” and we’re inclined to agree.
