Ylvis Appears On 'Today' To Perform Their Viral Hit 'The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)'
YouTube sensation, Ylvis, appeared on Today to perform their viral video hit “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)”
The Norwegian duo donned their trademark fox outfits (ears included) for the performance, and even the Today anchors joined in on the costumed fun, wearing fox ear headbands to introduce the band.
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.”
As for what’s next for the musical duo, Ylvis appear to be open for suggestions: “Wolf… a lot of people have said giraffe.”
Ylvis also performed “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday.
