Did you ever wonder what the fox say? I mean, we all know what dogs and cats and cows say (even if there seems to be some national differences) but what does a fox say?
This is the question Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis are asking us all in this funny video:
I know they have me wondering now.
Ylvis are the two brothers from Bergen, Norway, Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåker, and they have a show on Norwegian television. They aren`t always very funny (I must admit that I usually catch the funnier bits on YouTube as I can`t be bothered to watch the whole show) but because of their musical talent, their music videos are usually hilarious. They make fun of everything from dubstep to Scandinavian “dansband” music.
Here are a couple of their songs:
Stonehenge (notice the bad rhymes!)
Haven`t you seen videos like Stonehenge just a few times too many?
Someone like me
And now I`m reminded of how much I dislike dubstep.
I just love the details about vaginas 🙂
La det på is
This one is in Norwegian but makes fun of Norwegian rap which always uses a lot of American curse words
You might not understand the words but they really nailed Norwegian rap. The lyrics are about how hard it is to be a comedian and how many jokes they have to throw away.
The last one is also in Norwegian and makes fun of the Scandinavian musical form “dansband” – a really ugly kind of music.
Just like they nailed Norwegian rap, they also made a true copy of dansband music. The annoying smiles, the suits, the silly winks.
Ylvis have also made quite a few pranks/hidden cameras. I`m usually not a fan of hidden camera but I did enjoy the elevator prank where they pretended to be “the talking elevator” at a hotel. Yes, it`s entirely silly and probably incredibly annoying too, at least for the people who just wanted to go to their hotel room and relax. But I love the fantasy behind this prank (and am thrilled I was never in that elevator).
