With all due respect to Crispin Glover‘s “Clowny Clown Clown” and Leonard Nimoy‘s “Ballad of Bilbo Baggins,” the new song “The Fox” by Norwegian music duo Ylvis just might be the most unusual song ever created.
The undeniably catchy tune and its accompanying video, which was uploaded to YouTube on September 3, has racked up more than 11 million views in less than a week, and sent the world (i.e. the Internet) into animal noise froth not seen Fisher Price debuted the See ‘N Say in 1965.
Created by Norwegian variety show hosts Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåker, “The Fox” features classic lyrical sentiments such as “dog goes woof” and “cat goes meow,” but poignantly raises an age-old question that has stumped scholars and sticky-fingered toddlers for centuries: “What does the fox say?”
If you answered, “Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding” or “Jacha-chacha-chacha-chow,” you would be unbelievably correct on both accounts.
