The Ylvis Brothers are back after the success of "The Fox," a music video that has close to half a billion views on YouTube. The brothers' new track "Trucker's Hitch" may become a new global hit, with views on YouTube having already passed the 2 million mark.
Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker's new song and music video is an ode to one of the most complicated knots in the world - the Trucker's Hitch. "The music video is complete with sing-along-lyrics, a choreographed dance, and copious knot-tying," Us Magazine reports.
The Ylvis Brothers have had a long career as comedians and hosts of their own TV show in Norway, but it was their hit "The Fox" (What does the fox say?) that made the two Norwegians famous worldwide. The song hit was number 1 in Norway, and reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 stateside.
"Trucker's Hitch" is produced in association with Stargate, who also made the duo's first hit. The brothers found inspiration for the song on the internet and claim to be avid users of the advanced knot.
"It's an amazing knot. We did a dance rehearsal for this song, and someone had to climb up a dangerous ladder. We used the knot to tie the ladder, and it was rock solid," the brothers explained when they were interviewed by NRK.
