The two men behind Ylvis, brothers Bard and Vegard Ylvisaker, originally created the song and accompanying video to promote their Norwegian talk show. They had no idea it would grow to become a worldwide sensation.

“This last month has been just ridiculous,” they said.

The brothers also joked that performing on Today was their ultimate goal in writing the song:

“This was our plan. This is the main goal. We were sitting back home in Norway, thinking if we were going to perform this on Today show, how were we going to do it? So then we made the song about the fox.”

The brothers also stopped by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb to have a few drinks, and revealed how the song came about. Ylvis teamed up with Norwegian music producers, Stargate, to create what they wanted to be “an anti-hit.”
