Gotye‘s “Somebody That I Used To Know” has been covered, mashed up, and remixed to within an inch of its own death, but it is Gotye himself who decides to deliver the final blow. Here is the ultimate Gotye mash-up video, along with a few words from the man:
“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.
“Thank you to everyone who has responded to Somebody That I Used To Know via YouTube. It’s truly amazing!
“All audio and video in Somebodies is from the YouTube user videos featured, each of them a cover or parody of Somebody That I Used To Know. No extra sounds were added to the mix, but I used some EQ, filtering, pitch-shifting and time-stretching to make the music. ”
