Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis consisting of brothers Vegard and Bård Ylvisåker are back with a brand new song titled “a capella” and it is aca-awesome!
After the tremendous success of their surprise viral hit, “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)”, the brothers released their latest song which is a straight out parody of rising a cappella group, Pentatonix.
Like every other songs by Ylvis, the lyrics does and doesn’t make sense at the same time.
In the song, they answered some of the questions that many have been wondering about a capella groups; Such as why are they so cool? What are the repeated words they sing to make that melodic beat? (like “boodelooap”) or why are they always smiling good naturedly like “they know Jesus personally”.
A capella is apparently a rising trend right now with “Pitch Perfect 2” becoming the highest grossing music comedy of all time and now the franchise is currently preparing for a third film, Pentatonix is also a rising singing sensation, becoming the 13th-most subscribed-to music channel on YouTube, and let’s not forget that a new a capella docu-series “Pitch Slapped” had just premiered on the Lifetime channel last Tuesday.
All we can say is that the video drops in at the right time. Check out how Ylvis and the other a capella singers fend-off bullies with a capella’s strongest weapon!
