Another baiting attempt at an 'awesomely bad' song, this is at least mildly amusing in how it sounds like 'wtf sake?'

keep it together guys, its just a silly song that's better than most things it could be compared to

Sooo trashy das ich ne 6* gebe! Ich liebe einfach so scheiss!

Könnte tatsächlich der nächste Weltweite Hit werden, einfach nur ein wenig Zeit geben, dann wirds schon was!

tatsächlich hae ich noch nie gehört welches Geräuscht der Fuchs macht....sicher bin ich mir aber das es nicht so ist wie hier hahahahahhaha :P

As a deliberate comedy track, it is quite good. I initally thought it was a serious track but some quick research put me on the right path and allowed me to appreciate its true stupidity. It made me chuckle, it made me hum along, that's all I need from a comedy track.
****
I didn't like it much last year because I thought it was so mundane and I found the choruses to be horrendous beyond belief and the song as a whole offered little enjoyment for me. My youngest sister (who's 2 years old) loves it though and always attempts to make the fox sounds when she hears it. Honestly it's one of the most adorable things ever and I simply can't hate the choruses anymore. Choruses aside, I like the verses and that's something that's never bothered me before. The breakdown near the end is pretty rad too. It may have taken a while, but I finally enjoy this song.

I find the production quite predictable and generic, but the sheer ridiculousness of the lyrics makes this so much fun!

Absolutely love it now
4* > 5* > 6*

Wow, just wow.

The fact that you people give this a higher rating than Harlem Shake is ridiculous. This is horrendous and I never want to hear it on radio again.

This is perhaps Generation Z's own version of the knights who say ekki-ekki-ekki-ekki ptang zoom-boing z'nourrwringmm. And there is something Pythonesque about this anyway; that they turn a mundane observationist joke into [s]an episode of Seinfeld[/s] a legitimate song which even doubles as a parody of EDM is kind of brilliant. It does make me cringe when keyboard warriors have to poorly articulate their views (I should just stay away from YouTube) but then oh well, I get to laugh at them too. 3.7

Undoubtedly, the first verse is the most interesting part of the song (where you realise the absurdity of the lyrics upon initial impressions), and the rest of the verses aren't so. The choruses are more on the annoying side, don't really make me laugh.

The beat is a bit catchy however, and although generic, this, along with the video, is able to sustain my interest until the song's completion.
*****
Brilliant.

Can't belive why this is charting around the world.. This is so bad and the vocals made my ears bleed.

2* for the production

Absolute rubbish. Just terrible.
***
Hillarious.
*
OK breaking out of my monotone star system for this one

all I can say is if this shit charts I'm officially giving up on hope for humanity

EDIT: this looks set to be a hit, somebody gag me and give me S&M Rihanna style

EDIT: TOP 10?!?! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? what's next Shane Dawson gives Shananae a theme song and that becomes a hit?

It makes me lol. And Matty, it's already charting here. It debuted at #84 this week and looks almost certain to make the top fiddy next week. ;)
*
Just horrible.

Some parts are funny but than some bits are just stupid, 2.5.
****
I really like the verses and could even find myself liking the jibberish choruses if they weren't delivered so obnoxiously. I don't mind this at all though.
*
At least ducks were mentioned, otherwise FUCK OFF.
*
Cringe.
I've never even listened to the song from start to finish, I just can't...
*
What is the world of music coming to, belongs on Play School not on the charts!

TRASH!
***
Gangnam Style 2013 basically. Good for a laugh, but not for much else.
***
Gangnam Style 2013?????
***
This has surprisingly grown on me. The last part of the song really hits its stride and I'd have liked to have heard much more of that. But I can't get past those two choruses. Terrible. 2.3*

EDIT: Oops ... I kind of like this now. 3.5*

USCH!

Your crap!

i can't even explain how terrible is this song, but it would be something like the fact that it's literally a failure at attempting to be fun or original.
***
Could have been worse. Has it's LOL moments.
****
I remember I found this amusing back then, and it's not as unbearable as "Gangnam Style". However, I always seem to trace this back to GS as the second on my (see my "Gangnam Style" review) list of viral songs. It's still quite good, and the production is nothing short of excellent, so it's good. I haven't revisited this since January 2014 and never really plan to though, so, no thank you.

one of the most ridiculous songs of 2013.
