The internet has been inundated by Gotye covers ever since "Somebody That I Used to Know" came out. Everything from five people on one guitar to a parody of five people on one guitar has been used, and now we finally have the "one person plays five parts on one guitar" the world has (probably) been waiting for.

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.

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."
