I desperately hope that wherever you are and whatever you do for a living, that you have heard of Ylvis. I assume that you must have because I basically live under a pop-culture rock and barely know the characters on my kids’ favorite television show.
Their biggest worldwide hit (with almost a billion views of their youtube music video) is “What does the Fox Say?”
If you were here yesterday for my celebration of π di celebration you remember that I compared they mystery of π to Stonehenge. Which Ylvis has also discussed in song (not π. Stonehenge.)
They also have the most amazing super hero homage to Norwegian diplomat Jan Egeland. It has a very catchy chorus, “When there’s war and all is hell, send in Jan Egeland…Oh how I wish I was Jan Egeland.” And isn’t that great? I don’t know that I’ve ever heard a song about this in honor of a diplomat, so I love what they’re doing.
What I love about their music is that their music has inspired more study of Stonehenge, more international recognition of the great work of Jan Egeland and of course, we are now all haunted by the mystery: what does the Fox say?
