GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (FOX13) -

A viral Youtube video by the Norwegian group Ylvis that has the world asking, "What does the fox say?," is having a huge influence on what costumes some people will be wearing for Halloween next week.

The music video is really goofy but people are watching it, all over the world, and now anything fox is in.

"It's gotten like about 156 million hits. Yeah, it's crazy that something so silly and little could be so big."

"Well I'm going to be a mermaid and my husband is going to be a fisherman. Still trying to figure out our Halloween plans right now. So a fox could be a possibility. I could be a fox!"

Yes she could. But she needs to move fast. An outfit put out by Yandy.com is all but sold out. Spirit Halloween stores, which has more than a 1,000 locations throughout North America, is also reporting huge online sales and its foxy costumes are flying off the shelves at the "It's Big Tent Store on Germantown Parkway.

"Quite a few girls come in here looking for fox tails, fox ears and the fox costumes," said Marissa Kuder of Spirit Halloween store.

By the way, one Halloween costume did sell even faster than the foxy outfits. The Miley Cyrus twerkin' teddy bear outfit.

"Gone before we even got it in the store," Kuder said.

There are two foxy outfits left at the Spirit Halloween Store, an extra large one and a medium-small. They go for $49 and there is a 20-percent off coupon, if you know where to find it.

Whatever you dress up like on Halloween just remember don't drink and drive, and watch out for the little ones.
