Book edition coming of YouTube ‘Fox’ sensation
NEW YORK (AP) — You’ve probably seen that YouTube video about what the fox says. Soon you’ll get to read about it.
Simon & Schuster’s Children’s Publishing has acquired a picture book based on the online sensation devised by the Norwegian comedy team Ylvis. The publisher announced Monday that the upcoming release, “What Does the Fox Say?” will come out Dec. 10.
Ylvis, alias for brothers Vegard and Bard Ylvisaker, have scored more than 200 million YouTube hits since September of them prancing in fox suits singing: “Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!”
