Just when the Backstreet Boys and 'Nsync were fading from memory, '90s fever catches up again with the Second Coming of the Boy Band. Already ridiculously popular in their native U.K., the preteen quintet One Direction has made enough of a splash in the U.S. for the predictable boy band backlash to occur. This particular parody doubles as a nice introduction to the band if you haven't heard of them yet.

GENIUS. But please note that we have a zero-tolerance policy for Snorlax jokes in situations like these.

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?

Gotye's hit of the summer spawned so many YouTube parodies that he assembled literally hundreds of them to create a definitive "YouTube Orchestra" mashup. We'll let him speak for himself:

Reluctant as I am to add to the mountain of interpretations of Somebody That I Used To Know seemingly taking over their own area of the internet, I couldn't resist the massive remixability that such a large, varied yet connected bundle of source material offered.

It's tough being a Hufflepuff. They're not courageous like those in Gryffindor, not smart like those in Ravenclaw, and they can't even aspire to be evil masterminds like members of Slytherin. They're just vaguely friendly and won't douche out on you. This parody of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" tries to put some pride back into the most overlooked house.

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.

The folks at Key of Awesome have added another video to the towering mountain of "Call Me Maybe" parodies, this time with the spin of a bad one-nighter.
