Thank ye, viral gods, for the bounty you have bestowed upon us today. About eight hours ago, the band Walk Off The Earth uploaded a beauty of a vid to YouTube, featuring five people playing a cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” on one guitar.
The band, who describes themselves on Facebook as “one of the only ‘Truly’ Independent bands in the music Industry today” boasts more than 25,000 fans on Facebook, and seems to be racking up even more as the video spreads around the web. They also have nearly 30,000 subscribers on YouTube and proclaim in their description: “WOTE is an Indie Band. They touch on many genres and strive to make the most creative videos possible.”
It seems like they’ve hit gold with this little vid, which is making its way around the web today in force.
We’ve reached out to the band for more info on the video and what effect it has had on their following since it was posted Thursday.
