Ylvis releases a new video – “Mr. Toot” following their last video “Trucker’s Hitch” two weeks ago.
Oslo, Norway (September 30, 2014) – International comedy duo Ylvis wlll release a series of new comedy videos as part of season 4 of their highly successful Scandinavian TV series “Tonight with Ylvis.” Kicking off the new season was Trucker’s Hitch, a hilarious new song/ video tackling the complexities of this singular knot. Their newest video Mr. Toot debuted tonight during episode 3 of the new season for their late-night show, and examines the common pitfalls of stardom.
Ylvis is brothers Vegard and Bård Ylvisåker whose popular late-night talk/ comedy show has built a reputation for integrating hilarious music videos with guest interviews, gags and other comedy bits. The show airs on TV Norge in Norway as well as Channel 9 in Sweden and Channel 6 in Finland.
For Mr. Toot, Ylvis has teamed up with the production and songwriting team StarGate (Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyoncé) who also co-wrote The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) and Trucker’s Hitch with the Ylvis brothers.
When asked about the new song, the Ylvis brothers Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker said:
We appreciate the importance of history. History is filled with stories of great men with even greater abilities; the Greeks had Aristotle, the Egyptians had Tutankhamun and the Indians had Gandhi. Once in a while, dedicated people make discoveries that reveal legends previously unknown to mankind. Now is one of those times and we wanted to make a song about this most recent discovery. The tale of Mr. Toot is a story of greatness, greed, MIDI and swimming pools.
Stay tuned for more new songs and videos from Ylvis coming this fall.
