The Last Gotye Parody That Will Ever Be Made (Or Should Be Made)

I'll Allow It

When something hits really big, it inevitably gets parodied. And parodied. And parodied until everyone wishes it would just go away. The reason everyone starts making parodies in the first place is because the source material was so good so it’s a shame once the internet is done with it, no one ever wants to see/watch it again. So goes the music video for Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.” To be fair, the videos that spun off of it were actually quite entertaining, and we simply cannot get the Star Wars/George Lucas version out of our heads, but perhaps it’s finally time to put an end to them all. Here to do it is comic Eric Schwartz. Watch as he attempts to break up with the song for good and when you’re done, you may want to watch this just to keep the circle of life intact.
