Gotye - Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra

For the last year international pop star, Gotye, AKA Wouter "Wally" De Backer has owned airwaves with his famed song "Somebody That I Used To Know" off of his Making Mirrors album. Humble to the core despite major success across the globe, Gotye mixed together an entire orchestra of the dozens of covers he's enjoyed from fans of the song. Putting in his own time and effort to create the mix, Gotye posted the video on his official page as a thank you. Check it out after the break:

In an age where people post and repost things to youtube all the time stripped of credit for the original creator's stamp, Gotye took the time to post in a blog on his website the breakdown of every single clip he used.


This is a true celeb I'd like to hang out with sometime. Below are some of my favorites.
