'DWTS' takes on Ylvis' 'What does the fox say?'
Still unclear on what the fox says or why you should care? Ever wonder what kind of eight-member plushie-based Team Freestyle acid trip would earn a perfect 30 on Dancing With the Stars? The answers to some of life’s least significant questions lie beneath:
The fox says “Surprise! I’m Jack Osbourne and I continue to gently tear up the ballroom.”
High School Musical star Corbin Bleu (with partner Karina Smirnoff), Glee‘s Amber Riley (with never-lost-a-team-dance partner Derek Hough) and Pretty Little Liars‘ Brant Daugherty (with partner Peta Murgatroyd) rounded out the celebrity foxhole for “Team Foxing Awesome.” All in all, it was a bizarre yet inspired twist on Ylvis’ original viral forest fire:
But the real question here is whether DWTS‘ “Fox” routine rivals or even surpasses what was arguably the series’ WTF-iest moment: The overstuffed and haphazard “Team Gangnam Style” number from 2012’s All-Stars season. Who can forget Gilles Marini in a diaper?
(You, probably, until I just reminded you of it.)
I’d still call “Gangnam Style” the series’ ultimate sh*tshow, while “The Fox” is merely a well-constructed — nay, “foxing awesome” jazz hand lunged toward relevance.
Good work, everyone!
