A viral classic for this weeks Throwback Thursday
*Note* I’m going to be working the next several weeks during the day so it will be tougher for me to make posts. Expect 2-4 per day, but I hope to be more consistent once I better figure out the WordPress app!
To be honest, after two years of having it shoved down my throat, I absolutely hate Gotye’s, “Somebody That I Used To Know”. However, despite all of the overplaying, I found myself watching Walk Off The Earth’s incredible ‘big guitar’ cover from start to finish. I don’t know if it’s the whole big guitar thing or that their all so incredibly talented, but I did not skip one second of the video.
Since posting this cover two years ago, HUGE things have happened for the band. After going viral and reaching hundreds of millions of viewers, Walk Off The Earth took transferred their skills of covering hit songs into creating original music. The move turned out to be a success, with their debut album meeting much acclaim and finding themselves on the line up card for major festivals, including Firefly Music Festival.
It’s always awesome to see a small time YouTube band strike it big with one of their videos. If you haven’t done so in the past two years, head on over to Walk Off The Earth’s YouTube channel for some amazing content!
