His exact words:

"They did such a faithful arrangement of the instruments but the vocals were that pop Glee style, ultra dry, sounded pretty tuned and the rock has no real sense, like it's playing to you from a cardboard box. It made it sound dinky and wrong."

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.

We know, we know. You've heard both of these songs a million times before, and not even an adorable mashup of the two by Pomplamoose might keep you from rolling your eyes and saying "UGH, not AGAIN" (did you do that? Be honest!) But this arrangement is executed well enough to be worth your time, and the music video defies the obvious visuals by paying homage to the 2009 thriller "The Box" (or possibly "Button Button" by Richard Matheson, the short story on which the movie was based).

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!
