I guess it isn't just here that we make pointless comparisons - they do it on Facebook, too! And in Canada, if the hockey metaphor is any indication. Yay stereotypes!

Five People, One Guitar, One Parody

The Walk Off the Earth video of five people playing one guitar spawned approx. five billion parodies. This is one of the better ones, achieving at least some competency in playing 1/5 of a guitar per person while sharply observing the likely economic situation of a band that can only afford one guitar between the five of them.

The group Walk Off the Earth performs the song "Somebody That I Used to Know," originally by the Australian singer-songwriter Gotye. The catch? They all play on different parts of the same guitar.

It'd be easy to dismiss the five-musicians-one-guitar schtick as a gimmick, but the group actually creates a beautifully-executed rendition of the song in its own right, perfect for listening if you're celebrating Single's Awareness Day today.

Everyone's favorite heavy metal cover artist might be a little late to the party with Gotye covers and parodies, but that doesn't mean he's any less welcome (we still love you!). Maybe next he can do a metal cover with five people on one guitar.
