Chances are you’ve never heard of Ylvis. But you might have seen this video blowing up the internet of late.
If you played this track in a crowded club, I’d be willing to bet most people barely listening would just believe they’re hearing some shitty David Guetta track.
So who the hell are these geniuses?
Well, according to Ylvis’ Wikipedia page, the group consists of brothers Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker. The result of their work draws comparisons to Lonely Island and even Flight of the Conchords, but most people in America have probably never heard of them.
While Ylvis is actually a variety show, the brothers have taken their talents to the web with a series of music videos. We did a little digging and found this …
While The Lonely Island and Flight of the Conchords are somewhat lazy comparisons, Ylvis is similarly great because they get it. The music they produce is no different from what you hear on your crappy radio, they just happen to use their voice talent to sing about things so stupid it’s actually intelligent.
Oh, and just for good measure, here’s a final Ylvis video for all the dubstep lovers out there feeling left out.
Considering how long these songs get stuck in your head, one must wonder how long it is before Ylvis do a worldwide tour.
