This song is what happens when you mix “How now, brown cow?” with Norwegian dance music, and it will blow your mind:

NO ONE, asserts the singer, knows what sound a fox makes. Options include:

  • Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringering!
  • Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!
  • Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!
  • Joff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!

If you were scandalized by Miley twerking at the VMAs, you might want to avoid this, because a grown man in a full-body fox suit is thrusting his special parts at you. It’s enough to make you WISH foxes were endangered. The video also features what we can only assume Zach Galifianakis will look like in 50 years, reading to a small child on his lap, as well as a Josh Groban lookalike somehow managing not to laugh while singing “Big blue eyes, pointy noise, chasing mice and digging holes.”

Praised in earnest male harmony, beautiful red fox fur has never sounded so sensual. Perhaps the group is singing about a fire fox (a.k.a. red panda)? Because in addition to being endangered, they’re also stupid cute.
