Think five people performing on one guitar is hard? Try it on an instrument five times smaller.
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 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.
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?
