By no means a comprehensive list…
If anyone is interested in translating articles or doing transcripts of radio interviews, let me know! I could start posting them separately?
A summary of the article by Sjelaine:
“It’s all about the 40-plus person team effort put in to create the Fox song and their show, and starts with their childhood, in particular Christmas in Angola when Bård had to put a pot on his head to go outside to get the presents he left by their pool, because of the falling bullets from people shooting into the air… They credit their mom with pushing Vegard and later Bård to audition for the Fana school theater, saying they would never have set foot on a stage if it wasn’t for her.”
Sjelaine also translated a couple of the photo captions (from Part 1):
The photo of Bård and his Mom:
“IN THE BEGINNING: Bård is reading a book with mom Helga Ylvisåker, who encouraged the brothers to start (performing) at the Fana school theater — where they were later discovered by their first manager.”
The photo of Bård in the leather chair and Vegard looking out the window:
“WAITING: Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker are waiting backstage at the Paul O’Grady show in London, where they will perform “The Fox”. — “Oh, an EC 145! We don’t have those in Norway,” says Vegard when he sees a helicopter out the window. He’s been interested in planes since he was a child, and is a trained (pilot.)”
