This week's Prom With a Pop: 'What Does the Fox Say?' w/video

We're heading to the woods again during this third week of our pop culture inspired prom series, but this time we're in search of a fox. • Okay, that may sound a little ring-ding-dingy, we know. But we couldn't resist the viralness of this YouTube sensation-turned-children's-storybook by the Norwegian duo Ylvis. • Think feathers and furry texture, even cute little fox ears. Don a faux coonskin cap and you'll make everyone smile (just make sure it's okay with your date). • This week's PROM WITH A POP: What Does the Fox Say?
