Internet, meet the new Harlem Shake. 'What does the fox say?' -- VIDEO

Note to Seth Meyers: This is how you promote a talk show.

Norwegian talk show hosts Bård Ylvisåker and Vegard Ylvisåker have released the below music video, “The Fox,” as promotion for the new season of their show I Kveld med YLVIS, and if this addictive, silly video is any indication, you’re going to need to order a box set of the program stat.

To say much about this incredible song/music video would spoil the surprise, but let’s just say that the viral-ready tune, first discovered by Pleated-Jeans, combines the sexiness (?) of “Blurred Lines,” with the WTF-factor of “Get Lucky” and adds a little Old MacDonald (“What does the fox say?”) for good measure. It’s a song of summer that’s perfect for adults who love ragers and small children who enjoy animals. Basically, picture a Werewolf Bar Mitzvah that Mokiki crashed.

Stop whatever you’re doing; nothing is more important than checking out your new favorite music video below: READ FULL STORY

Boy Band Battle -- Day 1: Which group has the best appearance?

Between NSYNC reuniting (however briefly) and the One Direction documentary hitting theaters this weekend, EW’s PopWatch is getting a serious wave of nostalgia—and the urge to revive one of the most important debates: What is the all-time greatest boy band?

Any good fan girl (or guy!) knows this debate is about so much more than just the hits. There’s things like group appearance, harmonies, music videos and dance moves to consider. For the next week, each day all the bands listed below will be competing in various categories. While an EW writer will be advocating for each, the final decision is up to you. Each day a band wins the vote, they’ll receive a point. At the end of a week, whichever band has the most points will be declared EW’s Ultimate Boy Band. Today’s category? Best Appearance.

On the scene: One Direction fans wait days outside for entrance to 'Today' concert

Note to morning shows: You don’t want to mess with fangirls.

Hundreds of excited teenage girls have spent the past few days camped out at Rockefeller Center in New York City, eager to snag a spot at One Direction’s Today show concert taking place Friday morning. But when EW went to check out the scene around 5:00 p.m. Thursday night, the rain-drenched girls (and their moms!) at the front of the line weren’t exactly upbeat. The problem? Due to the out-of-control nature of so many people being contained in groups by metal rails, the guards seemingly got overwhelmed and had just given out wristbands (which gives the wearer VIP, front-of-the-crowd access) to fans who, according to some, had cut in line. The only thing worse than waiting out for two-plus nights to see Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson in person? Waiting out in the rain – and then not getting in.

A rep for the Today show clarified in an email to EW, “As we’ve done in the past, due to the tremendous response from fans, we handed out wrist bands on a first-come first-serve basis to give fans a break from having to wait in the line.  We needed to use this process per NYPD’s recommendation to alleviate street crowding.  We understand how exciting this is for fans and we want to accommodate as many as possible on the Plaza.  We apologize to those who did not receive wristbands, but hope they can stay and enjoy the show.”

“I love my daughter, but if I told you what I did to get here, you’d think I was crazy,” said visibly frustrated Marjory Pante, a mom to two excited teens. “I drove two hours from Cape May County [New Jersey], got on a bus, sat on a bus for two hours, booked a hotel room to stay overnight so my girls could take a shower before the show, and they weren’t even 300 people deep into this line and people cut the line today and got wristbands. … My daughters love [One Direction] and it’s breaking my heart that they spent the night out here, they’re probably going to end up sick. I turned down a job interview to come here, so I could have had a job! I’m unemployed and been trying to get a job and I had to turn down a job interview to come and do this.” READ FULL STORY

'Modern Dads' premiere: Who's a pretty prince?

Dads raising kids — what a concept. We shall put them on TV, stat! said the network exec who uncovered this rare species. I will not be surprised if a significant chunk of the massive Duck Dynasty viewing audience sticks around for an extra half hour of feel-good scripted reality fare each week with Modern Dads. The series follows four stay-at-home fathers in Austin, Texas who like their offspring but love checking their fantasy leagues on their phones instead of watching their kids at the park. Sure, it’s a cliché, but I know zero people who cannot either relate to this scenario directly or get an eye-rolly chuckle out of it. It’s not rocket science. It’s just a princess party. A lot of people are into those too!

Highlights of the Modern Dads premiere included a 6-year-old named Joopsy, the promise of “baby wrestling” later in the season, and men who are genuinely comfortable taking a backseat in stereotypical “machoism” to their very attractive, mucho-money-making wives. On the downside, there’s the general awfulness of swingin’ bachelor Stone and a bizarrely shoehorned-in plot in which he’s peer-pressured into having a vasectomy, then decides against it after meeting a woman (who was clearly an actress) at the supermarket counter. The show’s not as hokey as NBC’s failed Guys With Kids, but it does feel almost like a badly scripted documentary of Guys With Kids in production.

Ashton Kutcher urges teens to work hard, 'always be sexy' -- VIDEO

After 35 years of hair-flipping, punking, and furious tweeting, Ashton Kutcher has decided to pass his accumulated wisdom on to the next generation.

His big speech came at last night’s Teen Choice Awards, which honored That ’70s Show‘s ex-star with something called the Ultimate Choice prize — a badge Kutcher characterizes as “the old guy award.” (Past recipients Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Taylor Swift might beg to differ — but 35 is like 350 in Hollywood years, so.)

Maybe going into what could be Two and a Half Men‘s final season is making him feel introspective; maybe he’s still channeling Steve Jobs.

Whatever the reason, Kutcher took this opportunity first to come clean about something that’s been making him “feel like a fraud” for the past 16 years — “Ashton is my middle name. My first name’s Chris.” GASP!! — and then to share three important things he learned back when he was still known as Chris.

“The first thing is about opportunity,” Kutcher began. The second thing is about being sexy.” [Pause for squeals] “And the third thing is about living life.”

'The Bachelorette' finale: 'I want to be your first, I want to be your last'

You guys, that just happened. I’m still all misty and swoony over that ending — yes, spoiler alert if you haven’t yet watched The Bachelorette finale and After the Final Rose — and here we were all thinking it was going to be a major downer. I know what some of you are thinking: Rebound! Contractual obligations! Other producer-driven deception and chicanery! But I don’t buy it. And not because I’m a romantic — trust me, I am the most cynical person you’ll ever meet. It should be pretty clear to anyone with eyes can see that Desiree and [name redacted for spoiler reasons] are clearly far more compatible than Desiree and Brooks ever were. Agree, disagree, or agree to disagree, rose lovers? Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click over to read Kristen’s full Bachelorette finale recap and Chris Harrison’s exclusive Bachelorette blog), and in the meantime post your thoughts on tonight’s epic finale extravaganza below.

Watch Kanye West's remixed 'Canyons' trailer

Can moviegoers count Kanye West among those hoping for a Lindsay Lohan comeback?

By way of his multimedia production company DONDA, West has scored a recut version of the trailer for Lindsay Lohan-starrer The Canyons – this time featuring a lot of deep bass. But the specifics of the sound differences between Lohan’s sultry lines are the least of our concerns. More pressing: Does this mean West has seen the film? Is Part 4 of the Lohan comeback train appearing in a music video for Yeezus? Should we expect newly late night show-bound Lohan to start getting tips from reality mogul Kim Kardashian? So many questions!

Check out the new trailer, as well as the original, below: READ FULL STORY

Aubrey Plaza discusses the struggles of self-pleasure on camera

Aubrey-Plaza-Conan.jpg

April Ludgate is so jealous of how uncomfortable Aubrey Plaza made Conan O’Brien last night.

In hindsight, Aubrey Plaza probably should have known that filming for her raunch-fest comedy The To Do List would likely involve her acting out some private moments onscreen. But somehow she didn’t, as the actress explained on Conan. “I read it on the page, ‘Brandi masturabates’ and in my head I envisioned a nice scene where you see my hand just go out of frame…But then when I showed up, the camera was mounted on the ceiling, I was in my underwear and there were a bunch of old guys smoking [laughing] you know, the crew guys!…and then I went and touched myself.”

O’Brien may be uncomfortable, but this awkward moment is exactly the sweet spot of sorts that Plaza thrives in. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Confessional: I'm too invested in a reality show couple

My friends know if it’s late July or early August, if I’m not watching Big Brother, I’m talking about Big Brother. In seasons past, I’ve discussed game play and my picks for which houseguest can’t, under any circumstances, possibly be a real, functioning adult. But in terms of “showmances,” the casual hook-ups/BFFdom/relationship-lite, I’ve never really cared one way or another. Sure, it was silly to see some of the girls cry to the cameras when their beaus were voted out of the house, but it never really made or broke the show for me.

But this season of Big Brother is different. Not only have the headlines been bigger – racist houseguests, anyone? – but at least one showmance has gotten seemingly 100% real. And I’m, embarrassingly enough, 100% in. McCrae and Amanda got their start, as so many great television loves do, with Amanda coming to McCrae’s bed as soon as he got just a little bit of power. So naturally the assumption was the relationship would fizzle out right around the time one of them needed to throw the other under the bus and out of the house. But somehow it didn’t end there; over the past couple of weeks they’ve become inseparable. In a montage of their relationship in last night’s episode, the program even showed the two of them semi-seriously discussing their future together post-Big Brother, with Amanda hoping McCrae would move to Florida to be with her and become her “trophy wife.” (Her words.)
