“What the actual fuck, Norway?” Those are the words the rang out in our offices after the entire Nerdist editorial staff gathered around my laptop to watch “The Fox”, a brand new music video from Norwegian brother duo Ylvis. Honestly, I thought that we’d seen the height of balls to the wall, people in animal suits craziness from Max Landis’ Animal Fighting Championships, but evidently that was just the tip of the WTF iceberg. This insanely catchy anthem is a bit like Norway’s answer to “Old McDonald Had a Farm,” if the song was dipped in a boiling vat of MDMA. Bard and Vegard Ylvisaker have firmly cemented themselves as the next viral video phenomenon, so brace yourselves for the inevitable wave of YouTube parodies.
