Team USA is getting ready to bring home the gold from Sochi, but before they do, the members of the elite curling team decided to have a pop culture moment. Releasing a spoof of “What did the Fox Say?” the new video highlights curling in a whole new way. On Thursday, the New York Daily News reported the video is on pace to be viral by the weekend as Olympic fever hits the United States.
For the Ylvis’ version of “What did the Fox Say?” was all about the animal sounds. Well, the spoof of Team USA sort of alters the lyrics to showcase the sport calling it “What Does the Skip Say.” Using the words heard on the ice when the skip (or captain) calls down to the teams. It might be a foreign language to some people who have limited knowledge of the sport.
The video was shot in Scotland and then released by the USA curling team. While the sport isn’t as popular as it is in other countries, the video the ladies spoof is very well known. Hoping that the fans check out the sport as they look over the video, the idea might get more people interested in watching the Sochi Olympics. Then again, curling has been never been really popular, so maybe that is too much to ask.
