Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Ylvis “The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)”

TIme once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

If you thought last week's installment was over the edge, you haven't seen what was uncovered in the course of finding it, no less than this little gem. Ylvis is a comedy duo from Bergen, Norway, consisting of two brothers named Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker. (So, "Ylvis" is an abbreviation of their surname, not the Norwegian spelling of "Elvis" after all. Imagine the relief.)

Most Americans got their first glimpse of them on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon just two weeks ago. From their professional debut in 2000, they now have a successful talk show on NorgeTV, already in its third season.

This video already has 180 million views. It's not hard to see why, don't you think?

Or don't you?
