The song proposes a number of different possible fox vocalizations:|
– "A-hee-ahee ha-hee”
Yes, they’re funny — spit-take funny, even, especially when they drop right when you’re expecting a big musical breakdown (and "sung” by a Santa type telling his grandson a bedtime story), but could they actually be accurate? While Popular Science has already consulted with some experts, we went digging and found some field recordings from the Macaulay Library at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, an audio archive that contains over 9,000 different species, which may definitively answer the question that burns at the heart of the Ylvis song (at least for a few varieties of fox).
While we were tragically unable find any evidence of foxes with the ability to funky scat, like the CGI fox that appears at the finale of the song, it turns out the "The Fox” may actually be more on-point than its mindblowingly shrill breakdowns suggest.
