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!

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.

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?

You still tear up every time you hear this song, even after the billionth time. Admit it.

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 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).

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.
