We all know what a fox says these days, thanks to the weird-but-catchy 2013 hit song put out by the Norwegian duo, Ylvis. But do you know how a fox laughs? Neither did we, until now.

This is Archer.

He is a 4-year-old Artic Fox who lives in Michigan with his owner, Kristina Shafer. According to her Facebook page, she got him when he was just a pup.

Look how cute and little he was!

He’s not so little anymore, but still very cute. And he’s also a bit of a ham. He can’t help but crack up every time he hears laughter. Here he is laughing whenever Shafer’s boyfriend laughs:

We have to admit, his high-pitched laugh is pretty contagious. It’s not at all surprising that the video, posted by Shafer just on Sunday, already has more than 57,000 views. “How Does The Fox Laugh” just might be the next big hit of 2016.
