Ylvis' 'The Fox': Ohio University marching band knows what the fox says

Posted on

Ylvis’ “The Fox” is hitting all the viral-video milestones. First, it’s racked up nearly 30 million views on YouTube. Now, it’s been covered — in epic, choreographed fashion — by a college marching band.

The Ohio University band performed a John Philip Sousa-approved version of the jokey EDM song during halftime on Saturday, even setting down their instruments and busting a move in the middle. Watch the foxy footage below:

Norwegian talk show hosts Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåker are behind the viral hit, which stormed the Internet earlier this month. Meanwhile, the Ohio University band is earning a reputation for its covers of trendy songs. If you want more, check out their “Gangnam Style.”
