Ylvis is a Norwegian comedy duo from Bergen, consisting of brothers Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker. They debuted as professional variety artists in 2000 and have since had a string of very successful variety shows, humoristic concerts, TV shows, radio shows and music videos. Their song “The Fox” went viral on YouTube in September 2013, bringing the brothers to international attention.
Living in Norway I’ve had to deal with this shite for the last few weeks.
Norwegian funny is not funny. I have told by numerous workmates that Ylvis are funny, and ‘ it’s a scientific fact no one does know what noise a fox makes’ . I have tried to explain the simple nonsense of both of these assertions but I’m afraid it fell on deaf ears….
The worst part of it all I have a seven year old son who thinks its great, if you really want to hear some ear splitting euro pop pap then check out Dj Broiler ‘ Vannski’ it’s truly shite of the rankest kind. This was not an expected outcome of our decision to leave the UK.
