Unless you’ve been hiding deep in the Scandinavian forest or paying attention to real news, you’ve probably heard about Norwegian comedians/musicians Ylvis and their You Tube sensation, The Fox. I personally think it’s hilarious, but I also love it because it’s one of many awesome things from Norway.
I’m a little biased- my mother’s grandparents emigrated to the US from Norway and I grew up with a lot of Norwegian pride. So since I can remember I’ve loved all things Norse and trust me there’s a lot to love besides this ridiculously addicting music video. My love was even further cemented when I actually got to travel there a few years back- one of my favorite trips ever!
Check out the gallery for some of the best stuff to come out of Norway since the Vikings.
For more info on Ylvis, Check out Music Mom’s post and if you want more excellent music, may I recommend their ode to the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Jan Egeland.
