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 fairly self-explanatory parody. Lots of love for the original series, but it'd be nice to see a TNG version, or even DS9 and Voyager. Also, WHY ISN'T THE SECOND STAR TREK MOVIE OUT YET?

A politricks-themed parody spontaneously recasts the original Hot Problems into a song about the Bush daughters circa 2001.

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.

He learned it the (sort of) hard way from Coolio.

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.

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.
