Gotye Remixes ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’ YouTube Parodies
Gotye has paid tribute to the hundreds of videos featuring parodies and covers of his massive hit 'Somebody That I Used to Know' that have been posted on YouTube by putting together his own video mashup using the footage. "Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations ... seemingly taking over their own area of the Internet, I couldn't resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered," wrote the Australian singer, who used video and sound editing software to create the video collage from dozens and dozens of different clips, which range from solo musicians playing banjo, xylophone and saxophone to full-sized choirs from various parts of the world. "Thank you to everyone who has responded to 'Somebody That I Used to Know' via YouTube. It's truly amazing!"
