Parody of a Cover

The other day I ran into this parody of a cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know".

It's funny and very clever.

It's probably less funny if you haven't yet seen the particular cover.

So here ya go.

If you're thinking, parody?  Cover?   What the hell is Gotye?

Well, then you've been living under a rock.

Am I criticizing you for that?

Yes,  BUT with the acceptance of the fact that I too have sometimes lived under a rock...many times actually. 

Our radio stations play Gotye's song way too much.  Sometimes, when I hear it, I want to hide under one of those rocks.  It's a nice song, but annoying in a way. At least I think so.

What about you guys?

Do you like the song?  Love it?  Sick of it?  Never liked it?

What do you like best, the original, the particular cover, another cover, or the parody of the particular cover?
