“Ylvis” who sings the original song of the fox dance comes to Japan from Norway and dances with 300 people
■ Nippon-Ham 4-0 Lotte (19th, Sapporo Dome)
Located in Sapporo Dome, the “fox dance” that swept the baseball world this season celebrated an event that could be called the high water. At the Sapporo Dome on the 19th, the Norwegian comedian brother “Ylvis” who sings the original song “The Fox” will appear as a guest. Fighters Girl also captivated the stands with a different version of the “charming dance” to the usual energetic dance.
Before the game, the two members of “Ylvis” appeared behind the net wearing fox costumes. Around 300 people, including women fighters, stayed on the ground and danced to the live music. “Persol Pacific League TV”, which distributed the game, also released a video on the official website with the title “[Fel breuddwyd]Ylvis’s visit to Japan ‘A total of 300 people! Kitsune Dance All Stars'”.
Usually, the version performed between innings is familiar with tail flicks and arm swings, but on this day, the batsmen worked seriously on the middle spin version which incorporates the choreography in the music video of “The Fox” Girl. Infielder Kotaro Kiyomiya, who appeared on the bench before the game, bowed forward with a smile, while infielder Kenshi Sugitani went to the ground with his tail on. Players and fans were involved, and the atmosphere in the dome was hot even before the game.
