You know you’ve hit it big when Barely Political’s Key of Awesome has parodied your music. These are the same guys who’ve made fun of music heavyweights like Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
The comedy group has just added Walk Off The Earth to its long roster of parodies. In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Canadian Band went viral last month with a cover of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.” It’s already garnered 50 million views -- more than Lady Gaga’s latest music video for “Marry The Night.”
The band has nabbed a number of celebrity fans -- including Russell Crowe and Gotye himself. The performers also appeared on The Ellen Show.
Somewhere along the line, the Canadian artists caught the attention of Barely Political. The website released a parody of Walk Off The Earth performing “Somewhere That I Used To Know” on Feb. 8. Just like the original version, the parody features five people using a single guitar.
“Now and then we like to play the guitar together,” one of the comedians sings in a strikingly similar voice. “And that’s convenient since we only have the one. Tony sold our other instruments to pay some gangsters but he’s still in debt.”
