After “The Fox”, Ylvis Goes to “Massachusetts” (NSFW)
By Dan Casey on October 22, 2013
Being from Massachusetts, I am part of a proud tradition of fierce arrogance, unwavering loyalty, and general loudmouthing when it comes to extolling the virtues of my home state. Our sports teams are better than yours (even when, mathematically, they aren’t). Our witch trials are better than yours. Our gay marriage is better than yours. The list goes on. But who’s going to believe a Massachusetts boy that Massachusetts is so wonderful? Enter Ylvis, the the Norwegian comedians that took our ears by storm with the batshit crazy vulpine anthem, “The Fox”. They are back with a brand new follow-up video, entitled “Massachusetts”, that takes us all the way from cold, gray Norway to cold, gray Massachusetts. Let me be the first to tell you that everything they say in the video is true, especially about notable civil rights activists. But don’t take my word for it — watch for yourself (NSFW).
What do you think? Wasn’t it wicked good? Let us know in the comments below or feel free to tell me how great Boston is on Twitter.
