Don’t be surprised if a lot of little (and big) foxes ring your doorbell on Halloween. A music video called “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” by a pair of Norwegian brothers is giving “Gangnam Style” a run for its money on YouTube.

Vegard and Baard Ylvisaaker, who host a talk show on Norwegian TV, made the video at an animal costume party and are shocked that it’s racked up more than 133 million hits on YouTube. It hit 100 million viewers faster than monster hit “Gangnam Style.”

If you give a listen, you’ll find out why.

Sing along now!

"Dog goes woof, cat goes meow, bird goes tweet and mouse goes squeak ... but there's one sound that no one knows: what does the fox say?”

He might say "ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringedin" or "wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow,” if he was in this video.

TMZ reports that fox costume sales for Halloween are up at three of the biggest costume retailers in the country.

"Any day a Danish wolf song can come and we'll be so last month," Vegard joked to Reuters.
