The super talented and totally, well, foxy British songstress has blown us away again with a stunning, stripped down version of one of her EPIC songs!
Ch-ch-check out Let Go For Tonight (above)!
Wow! Like Zac Efron's patio furniture in an F5 sharknado, we were just blown the eff away!!!
Is this like, a new record??
We've never heard of a viral video turned children's book reach number one so quickly!!
It's been about two weeks since Ylvis released their children's book titled What Does The Fox Say and they've gone straight to number one!
In just one week, the publisher announced that The Fox sold over 60,000 units in stores and there are now 300,000 copies in print!
Three. Hundred. Thousand. Can you believe that?!
That's definitely an AH-MAY-ZING feat for the Norwegian brothers!
Bard and Vegard Ylvisaker are going to go down in history as the brothers whose viral video and song sold over thousands of children's books and took over the world for a brief period of time!
Congrats on all the success, boys!

Ever since Ylvis's The Fox dropped, the Norwegian comedy duo, brothers Bard and Vegard Ylvisaker, has been absolutely blowing up!
Their reach is now stretching across different forms of media…
In the form of a book deal!
That's right, The Fox is going to become a kid's book!
Simon & Schuster negotiated the deal with talent agent giant CAA and are currently adapting the work so the book can hit shelves by December 10th!!
That's an ambitious plan!
Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing president said:
"I cannot tell you how many times I've watched Ylvis's hilarious, mesmerizing, unforgettable 'The Fox.' The lyrics and playfulness of the song lend themselves perfectly to the picture book format, and I’m ecstatic that Simon & Schuster is publishing Bard and Vegard’s first book."
Everything is coming up roses for these guys!!
They signed a music deal with Warner Music Group and now they've got a book deal in the works??
Congrats, guys! Keep the funny hits coming!
Check out their ahmayzing music video (above) because it's infinitely rewatchable!
If you asked David Spade what the fox says, he'd probably reply: "Trick-or-treat!"
That's because David was spotted dressed up like a fox while out and about this past Saturday.
He was snapped while in his costume at Kate Hudson's annual Halloween party in Brentwood, CA.
We're assuming he, like so many others, was inspired by Ylvis' song The Fox!
He really went all out on his costume! He had a fuzzy fox colored wig, big ears, a full body jumper and a furry fox tail!
We bet he was totes the belle of the ball!
We wonder if people were petting him all night or tugging on his tail or singing Ylvis' hit at him.
We bet that got old quick!
David Spade, you are one foxy guy! LOLz!

We looooooooove Halloween! Seriously, who doesn't?
But what we love even more is the guy behind this Riverside, California house that decorates his house with spooky Halloween spirit and synchronizes music to the decorated lights!
Well, 2013 just got a lot foxier because keeping in tradition with the latest pop craze, this year's display is set to none other than Ylvis' The Fox!!
And it's PURRR-FECT! With over 8,500 energy-efficient LED lights, he hits it out of the park again in this spooky new vid, which you can see (above)!!
Oh, and did we mention that his electric bill is only $25-35 for the entire month of October???
It's a green Halloween display of foxy goodness!!
Watch what The Fox says (above)!!!
Everyone by now should have heard the song The Fox by Ylvis.
It's so funny and so catchy, it's kinda the best thing EVER.
Anyone who's seen the video would totally be interested in the fox costume worn by the lead singer.
So if you wanna be a fox for Halloween… grab your costume quick!!
Because they're selling like hot cakes!
Fox costumes are absolutely flying off the shelves due to the video.
One retail outlet said their fox costume sales were up almost 40% since last Halloween!
That's crazy! At least this Halloween we'll all know what the fox says: "Trick or treat!"
