Music Video | Gotye – Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra

At first you may think it’s yet another cover of that Sting sounding song until you realize that the rearranged hit “Somebody That I Used to Know” was remixed by Gotye himself. Inspired by Kutiman’s Thru-You project, Gotye consolidated a number of youtube covers of his song, some brilliant, charming, humorous, and sometimes mocking ones and turned it into a crowd-sourced jumble of “Somebodies” Brilliant!

To quote Gotye:

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.
