Over six-million people have now watched a bizarre music video released this week by a Norwegian band aimed at answering one of the great existential questions of our time — what sound does a fox make?

The band, Ylvis, unleashed the hard-to-describe music video for "The Fox" upon the Internet on Tuesday. Since then, the video has gone mega-viral.
The Washington Post celebrated the hit as "the greatest video of the Late Summer of 2013 of All Time."
"Earth, rejoice — all memory of twerking shall pass away, leaving nothing but the sheer unmitigated delight that is 'The Fox,' a music video by Norwegian talk show hosts Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåker," the Post's Alexandra Petri wrote.
"This combines everything that a music video should have: autotune, attractive people gyrating rhythmically in the woods, and basic, child-level facts about animals! It’s self-aware, but gleeful — 'I’m On A Boat' meets 'Gangnam Style.' It’s all the dancing people in animal suits we had no idea that we needed," he added.
CNN sarcastically asked: "Who hasn’t always wanted to hear the imaginary noises of the woodsy creature screamed over a club-ready beat?"
Ylvis is a Norwegian band made up of two brothers, Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåker. The two have been performing comedy routines in Norway since the early 2000s and currently host a comedic talk show, entitled “I kveld med YLVIS.”
