The Norwegian brothers of Yvlis made their late night debut appearing last night on Jimmy Fallon to perform their international viral hit, "The Fox," proving that it can actually be translated into an entertaining live performance as well.

Complete with furry backup dancers, and old man in a rocking chair reading to a little boy, Fallon dressed as a fox singing the cha-cha-chows, and ?uestlove wearing fuzzy ears, the brothers successfully recreated their famous video on stage with The Roots backing them. And we wouldn't be surprised if this video becomes as viral as the original.

The video was originally posted in early September and as since garnered more than 107 million views. It is currently at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is the biggest viral video in the world right now. The song and accompanying video was originally created to promote the duo's show, "Tonight With Ylvis." Following the song's success, Ylvis signed a worldwide deal with Warner Music.
