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."

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.

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).

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.
