From the quirky rework of Walk Off The Earth with five people on one guitar, to JaymeDee's kitchen floor cover - there are plenty of acts and talent taking their stab at Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know." The covers have gotten so extensive there are even covers of covers, acapella versions and cover mash-ups (see the Walk Off The Earth/Gold Digger mash up in the second to last video).
The thread that ties it all together - the fact that Gotye's Somebody That I Used To Know is such a good song that it sounds good as long as you have a scintilla of talent to speak of. Check out these versions and then enjoy Gotye's live KCRW performance:
