No, the two are not related.
I have watched this at least a few times daily since first seeing it last week. I wake up with it in my head. I am in love with this video.
Now by Ylvis' standards, this is very clean. You can show this to your kids. Most of their clips do not fall into that category, and the following videos, well, they go into that category.
I first watched these a year or so ago, and after re-watching them, I have decided that HBO needs to give these guys a show in the States, or at the very least, let us watch their show, I Kveld Med Ylvis, on US televsion.
This video below still makes me laugh out loud. It is raunchy and not for kids. And it is awesome.
Again, not for kids. And not for people who, well, you know, are easily offended.
On their show, they do this Intelevator bit. You don't have to speak Norweigan or Dutch or German or Chinese to appreciate how funny they are.
And the fact that one of the brothers, Vergard, looks like Josh Groban… well, watch this for yourself:
The fact that these guys can both sing their butts off is part of what makes their videos work so well.
It's official. I love them both.
