Have you seen the video or heard the song The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) by Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis? It’s hi-la-ri-ous and the video is ri-di-cu-lous. The start of it feels like a conversation at our house that my son and I have for hours on end:
Dog goes woof
Cat goes meow
Bird goes tweet
and mouse goes squeek
Cow goes moo
Frog goes croak
and the elephant goes toot
All to an amazingly danceable eurotrash beat that makes you want to jump up and pull out some funky dance moves.
But then the big question in the song is of course… what does the fox say?
It reminds me of when my son brings me animals like a zebra, or a giraffe (which I am pretty sure is silent) and I just have no friggin clue what sound they make. I just sort of improvise and make a weird hybrid moo-meow-woofy sound.
