The latest music video from Norwegian musicians/talk show hosts Ylvis, "The Fox."
The new song “The Fox” by Ylvis has quickly become a viral sensation, with almost 4 million views on YouTube so far. If you haven’t seen it yet, click above and watch it, immediately. I know, it’s the kind of thing that seems like it will be a disappointment, but it completely isn’t.
The song by the Norwegian musicians/talk show hosts examines the common ways we describe the sounds animals make, from meowing cats to mooing cows. However, they assert that no one really knows what sound foxes make, asking in the chorus, “What does the fox say?” They then descend into their imagined possible sounds for foxes which also happen to make pretty good club beats.
So, wait a second. What noise does a fox actually make?
Foxes make a wide variety of sounds, wildlife biologist Kevin Brennan tells KPCC. Brennan is with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

File: Comedian Dave Chappelle speaks to students of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts April 3, 2006, in Washington, DC.
Comedian Dave Chappelle is on the road, co-headlining Funny Or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival. Thursday night, he angrily walked off stage at a show in Connecticut after a few jokes, apparently thanks to a rowdy crowd, just over two weeks before he’s scheduled to appear in Irvine.
Here’s a video of the end of the set leading up to his walkout (warning: includes adult language):
The show’s official Twitter account made note of what was going on, asking for the crowd to quiet down:
Hey Hartford! Pipe down and let Dave Chappelle do his thing!— Oddball Fest (@OddballFest) August 30, 2013
Chappelle asked if the crowd had given that kind of response for everyone. He sat down and told a story about Richard Pryor walking off the stage after saying he was drained during a show, and how it signaled the end of his time touring. He also told a story of Damon Wayans dropping the mic and walking off stage when an audience member insisted that he do one of his popular characters.
World Wrestling Entertainment pro wrestler Darren Young came out to a TMZ reporter as gay, which WWE.com has confirmed, issuing a statement supporting Young. Young is the first active pro wrestler to publicly come out.
The wrestler was stopped at the Los Angeles International Airport baggage claim Wednesday by the reporter and asked if a gay wrestler could be successful in WWE.
“Absolutely,” Young responded. “Look at me, you know? I’m a WWE superstar, and to be honest with you, I’ll tell you right now, I’m gay, and I’m happy. Very happy.”
Young, whose real name is Fred Rosser, was arriving in L.A. to perform at WWE Summerslam at the Staples Center on Sunday.
The popular nightclub and TV singer Eydie Gorme has died, the Associated Press reports. She was 84. Gorme was known both as a solo act and for “Steve and Eydie,” teaming with her husband Steve Lawrence.
Gorme’s biggest hit was 1963’s “Blame It on the Bossa Nova,” which made it to number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Gorme’s publicist, Howard Bragman, tells the AP that she died at a Las Vegas hospital Saturday following an undisclosed illness.
Gorme won a Grammy for 1967’s “If He Walked Into My Life” from “Mame,” which hit number 5 on the Billboard Easy Listening chart.
She also won another Grammy with her husband for the album “We Got Us.”
Gorme was already successful singing with bands and in nightclubs when she was invited to be a part of Steve Allen’s New York television show in 1953, joining the cast.

Comedian Casey Jane Ellison recently released a fashion parody on YouTube called “WHAT THE F*SHION?” In her first episode, she set her sights on something near and dear to our hearts: Los Angeles.
The setup: Ellison, a New Yorker new to Los Angeles, is seen as being a real downer by her new L.A. community, so she decides the solution is to embrace L.A. fashion. She proceeds to move through L.A. fashion stereotypes, including the looks of several celebrities.
Styles embraced by Miss Ellison include eco-friendly, off the shoulder, model Alexa Chung, Khloe Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, a white/Armenian Rihanna and a certain former “Friends” star. She’ll also bring you up to date on all the latest slang that she completely made up, like “outfie.” (That means “outfit,” cool kids.)
