Only a few days after probably the best parody of “Call Me Maybe” hit the Internet, the without-a-doubt greatest version of 2011-2012’s other ubiquitous online pop song, Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know,” has been uploaded to YouTube. The thing that makes it so special is that Gotye himself, Wally De Backer, edited it, compiling his favorite renditions of his song into one massive, definitive six-minute video. Or in his words:
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. (Via)
And with this, no other version of “Somebody” needs to be made ever again. EVER.
