At some point this fall, references, remixes and mash-ups of Ylvis’ “What Does The Fox Say?” became frequent and painfully annoying.
Hopefully, this is the last one: “What Does the Phanatic Say?,’ a play on the Phillie Phanatic’s lack of verbal skills (by Major League Baseball).
Because the Phillie Phanatic is just about the most entertaining mascot in sports — he’s definitely the best in MLB — this spoof is worth watching with the volume down (trust us).
If you can’t appreciate a nice belly circle this close to Christmas, there is no hope for you.
Mascots from Villanova, Temple and the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs are also included in the video, which must have been recorded fairly recently at snowy Citizens’ Bank Park.
Now, fer chrissake, stop making Ylvis’ references.
