Bizarre song & video of the week

Sometimes I wonder of the music industry is on certain occasions just plain stupid. Yes, I said STUPID! Point in case is the so-called new viral hit What Does The Fox Say? by the duo Ylvis. The music might be catchy (in a certain kind of Britney Spears Work Bitch way), but the lyrics are just the most mind numbing mumbo jumbo I've ever heard. Point in case: Dog goes woof; Cat goes meow; Bird goes tweet; and mouse goes squeek; Cow goes moo; Frog goes croak; and the elephant goes toot; Ducks say quack; and fish go blub; and the seal goes ow ow ow ow ow." Unfortunately that is the "good" part of the song. It is with the chorus that things get really freaky (aka shit!):

Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!
Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!
Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!
What the fox say?

Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!
Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!
Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!
What the fox say?

Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!
Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!
Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!
What the fox say?

Joff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!
Tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!
Joff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!

Seriously, how long did it take the Norwegian group Ylvis (aka for Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåker) to come up with the "intelligent" track? Yes, true, it's a fun track some might argue and yes the duo is a Norwegian comedy act, but for any decent music critic, this is just the biggest cow poo I've ever heard! They should rather stick to comedy and variety shows that music. And to add insult to injury, the video is just as freaky. A beautiful house in the forest, adults dressed up as silly animals, dance music and a fox and presto - a huge viral hit.
