Friday evening I came across a video by the Norwegian comedy group Ylvis on facebook. Two friends posted it. I had seen it in a online newspaper as well, but didn’t click on the video at the time. When two friends said it was awesome, I thought I should check it out. I know Ylvis. They are two brothers, Vegard and Bård Ylvisåker. Together they become the comedy duo Ylvis. They do comedy shows and now they’re doing a talk show called I kveld med Ylvis (Tonight with Ylvis).
The video is a teaser for their new season of I kveld med Ylvis.
OMG! What a video. It makes no sense, but yet it is so friggen hillarious. It’s so awesome I had to blog about it, even though I normally don’t blog about things like this. I’ve seen the video at least 30 times and I just can’t get enough. It’s only 3 mins and 45 sec, but every time I see it I find a new fave part of it. It’s strange that something so silly can be so catchy and captivating at the same time.
The video has gone viral they say (pepople / newspapers online) and since it was uploaded 03.09.13, it has almost 7.000.000 views. That is not normal for videos posted by any people from Norway. It’s crazy. Some call the duo the European Lonely Boys and some say it’s the new Gangnam Style. I think it’s way better than Gangnam Style. This is hillarious.
This song is made for a TV show and is supposed to entertain a few Norwegians for three minutes — and that’s all. It was done just a few days ago and we recently had a screening in our office. About 10 people watched — nobody laughed.

The song is produced by the Norwegian producers Stargate (produced songs for Beyonce, Rihanna and Ne-Yo).
Yeah. That was about it. I’ll go back to posting normal photography posts next week. Until then you can try figuring out what the fox say ;)
