What's the story?
\"THE FOX (WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY?)\" is a song and a music video by Norwegian variety-show comedian duo Ylvis. The song went viral on YouTube, garnering tens of millions of views in its first weeks, and has catapulted the group to international fame. The song is a parody of pop-house music, featuring over-the-top performances of animal sounds before finally proposing possible noises a fox might make.
Is it any good?
This hilarious video includes a large man dressed as an elephant who "toots," dancers doing choreography similar to that in Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video, and a CGI fox scatting and beatboxing. What's not to like? The pop parody is pulled off flawlessly, combining the playfulness of a children's show with the wit of classic satire.
