I’m shocked and pleased for the brothers Vegard and Bård Ylvisåker, members of the Norwegian comedy group Ylvis. They did, “The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)” to promo the 3rd season of their talk show, I kveld med YLVIS (Tonight with YLVIS) on TVNorge.  People went crazy for it and it became the latest in a long line of novelty hits. I’ve liked these guys for a while, as comedians, not really musicians, I guess kinda both.

My favs are still: “Stonehenge”, “Someone Like Me”, and “The Cabin”, but I can see “The Fox” is catchy. Hope they’re enjoying the fame and saving their money.

The parody, “What Does My Girl Say?” on SNL, starring host Kerry Washington was hilarious. Silly song for a silly song.
