The Star Wars That I Used to Know

Because as bad as the heartbreak of a relationship turned sour is in Gotye's original song, it's nothing compared to the suffering of a die-hard Star Wars fan.

The Gotye Parody to Literally End All Gotye Parodies

This Gotye parody might finally be the Gotye parody to put all other Gotye parodies to rest (please?). Comedian Eric Schwartz wrote this version of "Somebody That I Used to Know" as meta-homage to his once-favorite single, now bludgeoned to death by covers, parodies, and endless radio replays.

Watch out for the shout-outs to prior versions, including the Star Wars parody, the five-people-playing-one-guitar cover, and a Jewish rendition.

It's a sentiment everyone shares, but by making this version, aren't you just becoming part of the problem?

A Gotye/Carly Rae Jepsen Mashup Featuring a Music Video About Buttons

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).

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.
