The new video sees members Bard Ylvisaker, Vegard Ylvisaker and Calle Hellevang-Larsen doing anything that they can only do in the state.
Ylvis, the Norwegian comedy trio behind the viral hit "The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)", has returned with another comedy song. This time, the group sings about their favorite state in the U.S. in the song called "Massachusetts".
The new track arrives with its accompanying video, which opens with the group hitting The Bay State after a long journey "across the oceans." They are then seen spending their time doing various things in their "favorite place on earth."
The nearly-five-minute video then gives some looks at Ylvis doing anything that they can only do while being in the state, like reading "amazing books for free at the Boston Library" and eating "the local brie."
"Welcome to the Massachusetts/ Land of a thousand tribes/ Home of Nelson Mandela/ F**k the apartheid," they sing. "Come on boys of Attleboro/ Catholic Priests of Haverhill/ Staring dogs of the Suffolk County/ Local dancegroup of Pingryville/ Everyone/ Living side by side/ In the state of hope and dreams."
Massachusetts actually does hold some meaning to Ylvis. According to Gawker, the state is where the trio comprising of bothers Bard Ylvisaker, Vegard Ylvisaker and Calle Hellevang-Larsen would like to go to "charge the batteries during the off-season."
