Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis is about to become an international YouTube phenomenon after celebrity blogger Perez Hilton posted their video "Work It" on his website, praising the brothers in more than generous terms, even likening them to William Shakespeare in a fit of enthusiasm. Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker have long been celebrities in their native Norway, but the hip-hop parody "Work It" is really about to hit the internet and thus, perhaps, paving the way for some fun internationally. Although most of their material is in Norwegian, the "Work It" song/video has in all manners a broader potential, nailing the blatant sexual content of modern hip-hop and r'n'b. If you're a fan of New Zealand comedy act Flight Of The Conchords, you'll immediately recognize Ylvis' recent video for the fun it is. It's parody with a heart.
Watch, listen and laugh
