In an attempt similar to Luc Bergeron’s “World Covers – Rolling In The Deep“, Australian singer-songwriter Gotye pays tribute to some of the YouTube covers and parodies that has brought his song “Somebody That I Used to Know” such success.
The artists says this about his supercut:
Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of Somebody That I Used To Know 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.
You may be tired of this sickness, but have a look and listen to Gotye’s Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra. It’s really quite good.
A list of the original videos uses in Gotye’s remix can be found on his website.
