The routine contains a trio of a leading male fox and two women as backup dancers.
The lead dancer wears a costume of a fox with a white stomach. When the chorus hits, he also has a grey-silvery jacket and a gold necklace on. He keeps the jacket after the second chorus. He has a bold yellow outline.
The backup dancers wear pink and orange dresses and fox masks both resembling little red riding hood. When the chorus hits, they keep the fox masks on but the rest of their outfit changes. They then have grey shiny shirts with sharp-triangly fox heads on them as a design. They also have very short skirt resemblings coloured dark grey in a shiny fabric too. Their pants are plain, darkish coloured paired with dark green high shoes and a neon lime green coloured glove.
The alternate routine contains a duet of two men.
P1 is wearing a green raccoon hat and spectacles. He is wearing a short-sleeved brown scouts' uniform with badges and pockets and is wearing pulled up socks. He is also wearing shorts and an orange belt.
P2 is wearing a big hat similar to Pharrell William's and is wearing the same scouts' uniform, except with long sleeves. His pants look like jeans and are longer than the first dancer's. He is also wearing an orange fanny pack. Both are wearing the same type of socks and shoes.
The routine takes place on a field; when Ylvis sings "__ goes __" the animal appears with a speech bubble saying its noise. (e.g. dog goes woof; dog appears saying Woof) At the chorus, and the second chorus onwards, it changes into a replica of the background of the music video with more dancers behind them. At points, neon fox signs light up on the tree branches.
The routine takes place in a campsite in the woods similar to that of the Classic routine. There is a pitched tent and several lamps. There is light in the tent, and silhouettes of animals described in the first verse of the song appear. (e.g. dog goes woof; dog's silhouette appears)
There are 3 Gold Moves in the Classic routine, one of which is exclusive to P2. Gold Moves 1 and 2: Make a clawing pose. Gold Move 3: Swing your arms back and forth (only for P2).

The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?) has a mashup. The theme is Shamans, and all the dancers in the Mashup are dressed in tribal costumes.
The Campfire Dance is one of the few routines that follows the lyrics: for example, they imitate all animals mentioned in the first verse, and P1 whispers in the ear of P2 during "The secret of the fox" is sung.
In the Campfire Dance, around the first Gold Move, the coaches imitate Michael Jackson by tilting their (imaginary for P1) hat, then grabbing their groin. P1 wears a hat, but it doesn't have a rim. P2's hat does, however.
The lyrics in the beta Community Remix were red; however this was changed to orange in the final version.
The fox was used on the picture by Just Dance for Easter.
There are two different colors for the Mashup squares which can be found in the files.
At some point the dancers perform some parts of the official Beat It choreography.
Raven-Symoné and friends have danced to the Mashup of this song.
This is the second song of Norwegian descent to not be a cover, the first was Take On Me. It's followed up by Am I Wrong. The first official song of Norwegian descent was Barbie Girl, where the lead singer of the band "AQUA" is Norwegian. However it's covered.
Based on the body figures and facial expressions, the back up dancers in the chorus resemble the back up dancers in What Is Love.
