And another internet sensation... 1 million hits 4 days ago, 10 million today. Much more deservedly though than others as it's actually good, and I might have contributed by listening to it a few times over the last days...
It's so damn good sound & performance wise, that the sceptic in me finds it hard to believe this is actually how they recorded it though... alas, the whispering in the end they left in - "...I think we got it..." indicates otherwise.
Gotye - Somebody That I Used to Know - Walk off the Earth cover
To reply in Kiwi slang.
Not Gotye, I meant the Walk Off The Earth guys with their 1girl4guys1guitar cover. They seem to have been making multi instrumentalist/loopstation covers & parodies of random pop tracks over the last months that focus somewhat on the 'performance' aspect from the looks of it, some actually quite good. Nowhere near as fascinating as the one above, but they for shure have fun doing them, so here's a few others. The further back you go the more "Weird Al" Yankovic-esque it becomes though.
Yeah, whenever I find the rare good or even decent one for an electronic track I like, I download it. There was this guy on youtube called the29novfilms who made some pretty neat videos (mostly techno with the occasional dubstep/uk funky one), but I just looked him up and his account's been terminated by Youtube for copyright infringement.
Edit - And then you have something like this which is hilarious for how utterly ridiculous it is:
