If you drew a line from the rumour mill to Ylvis and Tix via Ben Adams and Gaute Ormåsen, then we’re pretty sure the lines would cross with Subwoolfer — those wolves (supported by a certain DJ Astronaut) known for their sweet tooth for grandmas and bananas.
Since their arrival to Earth, Subwoolfer have released their Eurovision entry “Give That Wolf A Banana” — celebrated around the galaxy after it finished 10th in the Eurovision 2022 final for Norway. On top of that achievement, they’ve entered the Spotify charts all over Europe and are currently #13 on Spotify’s Global Viral Top 50 — making them the highest-charting Eurovision act on that list.
A few days ago, the yellow-eared musicians kept the momentum going with a new music video entitled “Space Kelly”. As the name suggests, it’s a tribute to MIKA’s “Grace Kelly”…and a rightful celebration of themselves.
Subwoolfer re-work Mika’s “Space Kelly” in thank you video to Eurovision fans
In “Space Kelly”, they refer to all the speculation regarding their true identity. “You know who we are but you are still not sure”, they say.
In the screenshot from the music video below you can see our article from January, assessing whether Ylvis could be behind the yellow wolves.
Jim, Keith and astronaut respond to the rumours in the chorus – by embracing who they are, stating that they don’t have to pretend to be someone else, because “Subwoolfer is fun, bananas are yum”. Spitting facts, y’all.
They also shout out to several of the personalities they encountered during Eurovision. Jim and Keith have grown fond of Mika, as they include footage of themselves hugging him during a break at Eurovision while singing: “We gave a big hug to Mika, 200 million people saw.”
They also refer to Chanel, mentioning, rather cheekily, that all of their thoughts “were bad”, especially given that they are, in their words, “old enough to be her daaaaad.”
At the end of the music video, DJ Astronaut explains that the extraterrestrial group is heading back to the moon to create new music, so we can expect more content in the future.
The video isn’t their first foray into amusing covers.
During their time in Italy the cosmic trio published “Dragma”, a parody of Justin Bieber’s “Baby”, and “Turin”, their cover of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”.
In the lyrics of “Turin”, Subwoolfer suggest that the Norwegian broadcaster imposed some pretty harsh working conditions: “NRK work us like dogs, doing interviews for wiwibloggs”. We can confirm no wolves were hurt during the filming!
Jim and Keith also proudly note that they were busy saving Italian grandmas by “eating pizza almost every meal.” But the real reason behind their grandma-free diet in Turin was that “Italian grandma skin is hard to peel.”
All in all, the anthem dedicated to the host city made it clear the wolves really enjoyed their time at ESC.
We can only hope that Subwoolfer have a safe journey back home and don’t forget to share their new material with us Earthlings!

Hehe ? funny… But “Turin” is the best (after the Banana Song of course)
This could be their ESC entry next year and I wouldn’t complain XD not sure how the covers rules would go down unfortunately lol
Why are they still relevant?
Because a 3-letter chorus they’re not even singing themselves live is the peak of creativity for plenty of eurofans.
The “Keith is a media WHOOOOOOOORE” part gets me every time xD
I loved everything about this! They roasted poor Ochman & S10 for placing 11th & 12th, talked about people being attracted to them and confused by it, talked about the hug, talked about the mystery surrounding them and other fun things! It was a perfect way to conclude their ESC journey! : )
uh – AMAZING!
