Ellen Degeneres Teams Up With Ylvis For “The Fox”: Watch The Hilarious Perfomance

Ellen Degeneres is always on the pulse when it comes to viral videos, so it was only a matter of time before she brought on Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis to perform “The Fox.” The viral song, which has been compared to “Gangnam Style,” is completely ridiculous but absolutely entertaining.

After the hilarious performance, Ylvis sat down with Ellen to talk about their newfound international success. It turns out that Stargate (the production team behind your favorite pop songs from BeyonceRihannaKaty Perry, etc.) produced the song, and Ylvis stated they intentionally made it bad for the sake of their popular talk show. They also shared that “marijuana,” when translated in Norwegian, means “fox.” It all makes sense now…

Watch the performance up top and check out the interview with the Norwegian boys below.
