Gotye Creates Elaborate Supercut of ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ Covers [VIDEO]
YouTube is bursting at the seams with covers of ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ and the original artist, Gotye, has taken notice. He’s posted a supercut of his own, which not only shows off his crazy video-editing skills, but proves that he gets the last word when it comes to remakes of his mega-hit!
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.
I avoided using any existing remixes of the song, or any covers from tv talent shows.
As comprehensive and extensive as I tried to be with my downloading of source videos, I know there are many clips that I missed. Tay Zonday’s cover for instance, no internet mashup should be without him.
